For the first time, every member of the senior class at Ballou High School has applied to college, according to an article in The Washington Post. While this is an exciting development, what's even more encouraging is the attitude of Ballou's administrators. Principal Yetunde Reeves wants to Ballow to become a place where college is expected as an "automatic next step." Leaders like Principal Reeves who raise the bar of expectations are exactly what students in the District's public schools need. Hopefully, the Post will update this story when the acceptance for this class becomes available.
