The D.C. public school system published a new Web tool showing schools that still have seats available for families planning to participate in the second round of the citywide school enrollment lottery.
 

More than 20,000 students applied in the first round of the lottery for the next school year. Students could apply for up to 12 schools, including charter or traditional schools. Overall, 72 percent of applicants were matched with a school, according to results released at the end of March.

More than 8,500 students in the District are on wait lists for one or more charter schools this year, and nearly 7,000 are on wait lists for at least one traditional school, according to data released Tuesday by District school officials.
 

That’s an 18 percent increase from last year in the number of students on charter wait lists and a 25 percent increase in the number waiting for a spot at a traditional school.

A recent article published by Reuters titled “Teacher Depression May Affect Child Learning” suggests a possible correlation between a teacher's depression and student learning as measured by test scores. A depressed teacher may not work as effectively and engage students as well as a happy teacher. Therefore, teachers must control their moods because they affect daily interactions with students and thus student success in schools. This makes sense.
