District of Columbia Moves to Reinstate Education Ombuds

A D.C. Council committee has recommended about $279,000 in funds for the Office of the Ombudsman for Public Education, a program that has been dormant for five years due to budget cuts. If it receives the approval of the full council next month, the Ombuds for public K-12 schools could be restored in January 2014. (American University Radio.)
