When The Washington Post decided to have an important meeting about ways to improve the lives of children and families, it invited Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Pennsylvania Senator Robert Casey and KidsPost reader Rosa Kirk-Davidoff. Rosa, a 13-year-old eighth-grader at Oakland Mills Middle School in Howard County, regularly enters our contests and offers opinions on issues, including girls going to school in Afghanistan and if we should continue making pennies .
