A diploma is worthless if you haven’t learned anything. Believe me, anyone attending a DC public school isn’t learning squat. Spread the word-—Take your kids out of public school.
If they graduate and go on to college, there are some prestigious universities in the District of Columbia, but they are a bit pricey (like The George Washington University or Georgetown University). But there is always the public university alternative: the University of the District of Columbia. Their six-year graduation rate is 14%.
That's not the worst six-year graduation rate in the country (Southern University at New Orleans has a six-year graduation rate of 5%) but it doesn't sound very impressive. But I'm sure having a diploma from UDC will open a lot of doors.
