Summary:
The subject of most of the school board meeting is the construction of a school, specifically the Garnet C. Wilkinson Elementary School at Pomeroy and Erie Streets SE. Formal signing of the proposed policy agreement for the administration of the Anacostia Community School Division. Stanley J. Anderson speaks on the issue of the decentralization of the school concept, the roles citizens can play in the decision making process, and the feasibility of another site for the school to prevent loss of houses. Louise Tillery shares her viewpoints concerning the construction of the Garnet C. Wilkinson Elementary School at Pomeroy and Erie Streets SE. Carolyn J. Bingham speaks on the overcrowding of schools. At school board meeting, Louise Hutchinson presents community and city officials with concerns and a summary of previous testimony regarding the construction of a new school, known as Project 10-351, in southeast Washington, D.C. The school board provides a response to Hutchinson's testimony. Other community members, including Alton Jones and Theresa Jones, express their thoughts on the project and conditions of schools east of the Anacostia River. Distance of the school from the students' homes, loss of homes, and overcrowded schools are concerns repeated by community members.
