My 2-year-old son’s first language is Spanglish. He likes ice in his agua, the color azul, and las vacas, or cows. “Baby vacas,” especially. Lately, his favorite song is “Señora Vaca,” a little ditty that gives thanks to the mother cow for all the tasty dairy products she provides.

Some DC residents see the continued growth of charter schools as a threat to the DC Public School system. Others believe that competition between the sectors will spur DCPS to improve. At a recent mayoral forum, it became clear that Muriel Bowser and Carol Schwartz basically fall on one side of this divide while David Catania is on the other.

DC mayoral candidates faced a math problem of sorts Wednesday night at the campaign’s only major forum devoted to education: In 1966, the District had about 147,000 students in 196 schools. Now, there are 86,000 students in 213 neighborhood and charter school buildings, yet the city continues to open charter schools. Is this path sustainable?

The three leading candidates differed on details, but there seemed to be a consensus on the need for more planning.
