Achievement Gap Panel Event

On November 15, 2017, City Gate partnered with the Asylum Seekers Assistance Project to host Chris Bergfalk and Gary Johnson in discussion on the achievement gap in DC. Gary Johnson is CEO of DC Youth Empowerment Inc, as well as an adjunct professor at UDC. The mission: empower, embrace, and encourage youth to overcome environmental issues that point them in unproductive directions. Chris Bergfalk is a DCPS teacher whose classes for more than a decade have consistently closed the achievement gap for economically-disadvantaged, minority students in high-need, low-performing Title I schools.
