DC School Reform Now is educating, organizing and advocating to build support for public education strategies that prepare kids to become college and career ready.


The DC- Comprehensive Assessment System (DC-CAS) is the District’s standardized academic test, administered to all public and public charter school students in grades three through eight and in 10th grade. The test measures student proficiency in the areas of math and reading.


Join community activist Soo Hong at the U Street Busboys and Poets as she discusses and signs her new book, A Cord of Three Strands: A New Approach to Parent Engagement in Schools. The ethnographic study explores the Logan Square Neighborhood Association, a grassroots organization in Chicago that advocates parent engagement in low-income areas. There will also be a screening of the short film Parent Power.
