Carjacking at a top D.C. charter school

KIPP DC founder and executive director Susan Schaeffler said one non-KIPP high school student was shot and killed on the Benning Road campus last year. Ten KIPP staff cars have been vandalized and three cars have been stolen, two owned by KIPP staffers and one by a KIPP parent. "We need help securing our schools just like the traditional schools," Schaeffler said.
