I know it’s last minute on a Sunday, but if you’re in the mood for some half-smokes, beer and good company, all in the name of raising funds for The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School, this gathering is for you. DC’s very own Ben’s Chili Bowl is sponsoring the event and generously providing half smokes, chili, cheese, the works. There will also be vegetarian options and other delights.

Suggested donation: $20. Brokeass? Throw us $5 or a six pack and they’ll call it even. The party is being hosted by TEP Capital Campaign Board members, who are raising funds for a facility, since charter schools are not provided an actual building.

Location: 605 Q Street NW, (2 blocks from Howard/Shaw metro stop)

Time: 6-9pm

Opening in NYC in Sep 2009, TEP Charter School has made headlines everywhere because it will pay a $125,000 salary to teachers– all on a public school budget. The premise is simple: public schools can reallocate money in existing budgets and do better to attract and retain truly outstanding teachers.  NYTimes front page, 6/5/09: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/05/education/05charter.html
