Ward One Gentrification

Over here you can listen to a recent WAMU 88.5 F report by RBM on changes coming to some of Washington, DC's most densely-populated neighborhoods. An excerpt from the lede:
if you throw a dart at a map of the district, you're not likely to hit Ward One. It's not only the city's smallest ward, it's also the most diverse. Perhaps it's no wonder, then, that life in Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, and Adams Morgan is changing. As WAMU's Raul Moreno reports, gentrification is having a profound impact on Ward-One schools, especially those serving DC's Latino community.
