Fellowship Opportunity: D.C. Schools Ombuds

The Ombudsman for Public Education in Washington DC is accepting applications for its second cohort of fellows.  The Ombudsman Fellows will, "work directly with families, learn about the education system in DC, learn about conflict resolution, develop creative problem solving skills, and develop expertise on issues including special education, student discipline, truancy, and bullying prevention."  The part-time, year-long fellowship offers academic credit or a stipend.

Applicants must have a demonstrated interest in education policy and an interest or experience in conflict resolution. The fellowship is typically a good fit for current graduate students in education, law, or conflict resolution, as well as for recent graduates or professionals with experience in those areas. Applications for the Fall 2015 fellowship are due July 10.  (DC Ombuds Fellowship Info.)
