Wasn't sure I'd ever see this!

School reform commission to give control of Philadelphia's schools back to the city? dissolve itself?
On Nov. 16, the five-member SRC will consider a vote to dissolve itself, and Kenney is confident that it will be approved. The state Secretary of Education would certify the dissolution by Dec. 31, a move that seems a given with Gov. Wolf on record supporting local control for Philadelphia schools. The SRC would cease to exist on June 30.
Amazing! Won't fix everything overnight, but will at least let the city work on its own priorities and issues rather than feeling like a colonial holding of an atagonistic state entity. Forward, ho!
