Normally this article by Theola Labbe of the Washington Post would hardly get my attention. Yes, it's great that George Washington University is giving away full scholarships to 9 public school students to attend their university. I see this story every year. But this time Ms. Labbe mentions that charter school students are not eligible for the Stephen Joel Trachtenberg Award. So, as a GW graduate and chairman of the board of directors of the William E. Doar, Jr. Public Charter School for the Performing Arts, I sent Mr. Trachtenberg an email asking for an explanation. If I get a response I'll post it here.
