PHOTO: DPC Head Melody Barnes Reads To DCPS Students

504x_mellody081009Here's a pic from Jezebel.com of DPC policy director Melody Barnes at yesterday's Read To The Top events.

I think she was actually reading to  DC public school students, too.  

I'm checking with the Department to see what the breakout has been.For a while it seemed like only DC charter schools were getting media event love.  

Still no word on when if ever Duncan's going to invite the Opportunity Scholarship kids over to the Department.

She's very likely reading to the kids because the kids haven't been taught to read. Photo-ops don't teach kids anything. When we have educrats listening to kids picked from the class at random to read the book and all can do it, we'll have change we can believe in.
