Charles Allen is a custodian of Jefferson Middle School in Southwest D.C.
Several of D.C.'s public-school buildings have been renovated recently, but others are just crying out for repairs. The task of maintaining the schools, and preparing them for children and teachers each day, falls to a certain someone who often goes unnoticed: the school custodian.
DCPS has approximately 450 custodians, and education reporter Kavitha Cardoza tells Rebecca Sheir more about these "keepers of the school buildings."
