Christine Blasey Ford has broken a "culture of silence" around other experiences of sexual assault that stemmed from alcohol-fueled parties in the 1980s among classmates that attended private schools in the Washington, D.C., area, NBC News reported. A dozen women who attended Catholic and private prep schools in the Montgomery County area of Maryland decades ago when Brett Kavanaugh was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School spoke to NBC News this week, seven of them on the record. The women — most of whom signed an open letter saying they believed Ford’s allegation, and all but two of whom did not know her or Kavanaugh personally — shared their memories of kegs, bonfires and unsupervised beach houses where heavy drinking fueled sexually inappropriate comments and behavior and attacks that were never spoken of afterward. “So many of us thought we were alone,” one graduate of the all-girls School of the Sacred Heart said. “But we weren’t. … [Read more...] about Women from Catholic High Schools in DC Area Break ‘Culture of Silence’

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal study shows math scores are 10 percentage points lower for students using vouchers to attend private schools in D.C. compared with their peers who applied but weren’t selected. The study from the Institute of Education Sciences, part of the U.S. Education Department, assessed children two years after they applied for the government subsidies. The district has the nation’s only federally funded voucher program, established by Congress in 2004. It provides about $8,000 for lower grades and $12,000 for high school tuition to about 1,100 students, chosen through a lottery, from low-income families trying to leave low-performing schools. The Washington Post reports that Eleanor Holmes Norton, the District’s non-voting delegate to Congress, says the study shows the program is ineffective. ___ Information from: The Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com Copyright © 2018 The Associated Press.
