There should be a telephone number where parents can call in their name to testify, especially if they do not have a computer

My intention to advocate for the non revocation of the Dorothy I. Height Community Academy Public Charter School (CAPCS), will be , First : my way to express my profound gratitude for all the good things that happened both , to us as parents and to our children Schalom (2009-2012)˜ and John-Ronald ( 2007 to now). Second : Share how damaging this could be to shut down the dreams of more than 500 kids (Amos1 ) and attendants, staff etc... , how devastating it could be to destroy the WHO THEY WANT TO BE ONE DAY BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED FROM SOMEBODY WHO GAVE SO MUCH IN THEM.Such loss would be extremely difficult to overtake in smart kids like John-Ronald and Shalom.We can answer to the when, how , but I don't know who 's gonna take responsibility to answer the WHY? to those kids whose character and personality have been for so long challenged by the CAPCS COMMUNITY'S MOTTO. Tough task isn't it? Do we have the right to shut down of more than 800 kids? they are the future of Washington DC, THEY ARE THE FUTURE OF AMERICA IN THE UNIQUE TEXTURE OF CAPCS!!!

CAPCS has been my children's house for the past 5 years. And they have been loving it.

I am a teacher at Community Academy PSC, and I would like to speak on the revocation of our school.

I strongly support the continued opening of the CAPCS campuses as it is a foundation for students and their family to achieve their goals academically. and otherwise. Also for teachers to depart valuable knowledge and skills in helping students become lifelong learners.
