Mayor Adrian M. Fenty told reporters again that he will not answer any questions about twins Andrew and Matthew attending Lafayette Elementary.
The Northwest school is not within the boundaries of his Crestwood neighborhood. Their in-boundary school is West Education Center. School sources say the boys skipped the city's lottery system to win their spots at the high-performing Lafayette.
The 9-year-old fourth-graders are attending public school for the first time. Fenty promised that they would join the system he is trying to turn around once they completed third grade at their previous private school.
Media swarmed the mayor after he gave a key to the city to the Washington Kastles tennis team on the steps of the John A. Wilson Building.
"I'm not answering any more questions about my kids," he said.
Fenty said reporters should find new topics. "Please, just stop asking me the question."
