Merely asking to talk to the D.C. Board of Education about a school closing plan before today's vote was not enough, the one-time D.C. Council candidate said.The group of education advocates that convened the meeting will be holding a press conference today at 5 p.m.
"It's too wimpy," Ross said. "You should tell the School Board to vote no on this. ... We should be voting no, not voting for dialogue."
Parent and teacher groups and a host of school advocacy organizations voted Monday night to tell the board to kill a school closure plan released that afternoon by Superintendent Clifford Janey.
