"Schools for All" - Adolf Cluss and the development of public education in Washington, the Nation's Capital

This newly configured exhibition opens at the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives this fall. It highlights Adolf Cluss's role in designing eight public schools and three private schools in Washington.

Featuring elements from the former exhibit, Cluss's innovative concepts for design, ventilation, light and decoration which fostered an elevated status for public education can be revisited. It was in his school design that Cluss incorporated his ideas about the intrinsic and central status that education should have in an enlightened republic.
