Mendelson to convene hearings on education, truancy

The usage is a little rocky but morbidly appropriate. The official announcement of the July 13 D.C. Council public education roundtable is headlined: “What Priorities Should the Council Address During the Remains of Council Period 19.”

Those who want to pay their respects, or testify, should contact Erika Wadlington at 202-724-8124, by fax at 202-724-6664 or e-mail at ewadlington@dccouncil.us. The hearing starts at 1 p.m. in room 412 at the Wilson Building.

New Chairman Phil Mendelson also wants to reopen discussion of truancy in D.C. schools. The committees of the Whole and the Judiciary will hold a joint hearing at 10 a.m. July 12 in room 120. To testify, call Renee Johnson at 202-724-8092, fax to 202-724-6664 or e-mail at rjohnson@dccouncil.us.
