EVENT DETAILS

FutureEd, PAVE, and the Georgetown University DC Public Policy Initiative are hosting a policy forum on the common lottery system that Washington, DC, students use to select public schools in the city, one of the nation’s most innovative school-choice models.

Lottery director Catherine Peretti will discuss trends from the My School DC lottery’s first seven years. PAVE Executive Director Maya Martin Cadogan will share the results of a new PAVE poll gauging parental perspectives on the lottery system. And FutureEd Director Thomas Toch, who wrote about the lottery for the Washington Post Magazine earlier in the year, will moderate a panel conversation on the lottery’s past performance and future prospects. A light breakfast will be available beginning at 9:30 AM.
