Via America's Hometown, this Inquirer article about new developments in the Philadelphia school system and its hopes of keeping motivated parents (and contributing citizens). Certainly the city benefits when young, productive folks stick with their downtown bases rather than assuming they must move out for their kids' benefits. For that matter, once you attract motivated parents, the schools improve, and that's the kind of feedback cycle that helps everybody in its vicinity. I wish them luck.
