If District of Columbia public schools are known for one thing and one thing only it is for not having textbooks delivered to its students. It is the number one issue we hear about from new parents to our school. In an article yesterday by Washington Post writers Theola Labbe and Dion Haynes say it looks like this pattern will go on for another year. Michelle Rhee, the new school chancellor, says she doesn't know yet what to do about he problem but I have a suggestion. Donald Winstead has been the books manager since 1989. Perhaps its time for change? When does this new accountability thing kick in?
