Fenty has a plan (version 1)

Presumed Mayor-elect Adrian Fenty is starting to talk about his plan for the District's schools.
D.C. Democratic mayoral nominee Adrian M. Fenty gave a hint of his school takeover plan yesterday, saying high-performing public schools would get more autonomy and failing schools could be closed and reopened with new staffs and extra resources.

Fenty shared those details, his most in-depth explanation of what he would do with mayoral control of the schools, during a visit to two Capitol Hill campuses yesterday arranged by school board member Tommy Wells, the Democratic nominee for the Ward 6 D.C. Council seat.
If Fenty gets his way this may be the last Board of Education election that the District's residents participate in. This, obviously, has some people worried.
