Quick Hits

  • I had the wonderful opportunity to share lunch today with Bruce Stewart, the former Head of School at Sidwell Friends. Bruce has a wealth of experience, and I was please that I was able to spend some time with him. We spoke about the “tragedy” that is the DC Public School System, and I very much enjoyed the conversation.
  • Bruce is also on the Board of an organization called Fight for Children that supports efforts to improve public education in the District of Columbia. I’m excited about learning more about this organization while exploring the possibility of future partnerships with Reach.
  • Bruce, during our conversation, also mentioned that some of his comments were presented on Meet the Press on Sunday, November 15th. The show’s panel including Rev. Al Sharpton, Newt Gingrich, and Secretary Arne Duncan. The discussion of education begins around minute 22, and Bruce’s comments are heard around minute 37. 
  • Don’t forget about Reach’s happy hour event on Tuesday, December 8th from 6 – 10pm at Cleveland Park Bar & Grill. You can find more information, and make the suggested donation, here
