THE DECISION-making process that is shaping the future of Philadelphia's public schools can be characterized as nothing short of secretive, undemocratic and politically motivated. The focus of my outrage however is not toward Gov. Schweiker, who is doing what he's told.
The source of my frustration is the Philadelphia public officials who have failed once again at representing the needs of thousands of Philadelphia public education stakeholders.
It is unconscionable that any of our elected officials would support legislation that would make it easier for a for-profit company with a questionable academic and fiscal track record to run an entire public school district.
