						<h2>Open Schools</h2>

125
						<p>Choosing a school in DC can be confusing and we hope to support family decisions with data. We recognize that the "right" school for your children can be evaluated not just by standardized test scores, but by teacher turnover, parent involvement, special programming, community and more. We have built this tool starting with school populations by neighborhood, and gradually plan to add information we collect from the city, from NGOs, the private sector, and you!</p>
