Improvements Recommended for Better Oversight of the Capitol Page School
GGD-79-56: Published: Apr 26, 1979. Publicly Released: May 7, 1979.
- Full Report:
The Capitol Page School, operated for Congress by the District of Columbia Public Schools, provides educational programs and instruction to young men and women while they are serving as pages for Congress.
Administration, programs, facilities, and general conduct of the school were adequate for a limited term experience; however, the educational program could be improved by overcoming such limitations as short class attendance time, few elective courses, and lack of supervised study after working hours. Congressional oversight of the school has been difficult because operating records have not been maintained, and the selection and hiring of teachers has not been documented adequately.
