The top left‐hand story on the front page of the Metro section of today’s Washington Post:
Lawyers for the District argued Wednesday for the dismissal of a lawsuit that challenges city regulations requiring some child‐care workers to obtain associate degrees or risk losing their jobs.…
The requirements … stipulate that child‐care center directors must earn bachelor’s degrees and assistant teachers and home‐care providers must earn Child Development Associate (CDA) certificates.
Meanwhile, just across the page, in the top right‐hand space:
About 1,000 teachers in D.C. Public Schools — a quarter of the educator workforce — lack certification the city requires to lead a classroom, according to District education leaders.
So how about this compromise: the child‐care licensing requirement will go into effect, but it will be enforced by the crack management team at DC Public Schools?
