D.C. chancellor: Students on Metro aren't threatening safety
After six Wilson High School students were charged in an attack at a Metro station late last month, some are questioning its safety. The students went before a judge, and one teenager is still being held. D.C. Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson says there were incidents on Metro before the city funded students' free rides. "I reject this notion that wild bands of roving students are attacking people on the Metro," Henderson says. Henderson says the incident at the Gallery Place station is not part of a pattern. "With 50,000 kids, there are going to be some issues — but that is not an indictment of all of our young people."
