They don’t care enough to actually fix it: Philidelphia Public Schools

So they plan on tearing it apart. My take on is that since no one actually cares about the education of inner city youth except for those without enough money or political clout for it to matter, what actually happens to inner city schools and the education that they provide is of little to no consequence. Philly just had to balls to actually make it plain to the world.

Plans to dismantle Philadelphia’s public education system have met with sharp criticism from parents, educators and education watchers nationwide.

But this isn’t going to stop them. Hey some would say that its better to know what you are facing presented to you plainly and this is plainly showing that they don’t give a damn.

“What we do know through lots of history and evidence and practice is that the current reform structure doesn’t work, said Pedro Ramos, the chairman of Philadelphia’s School Reform Commission, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. “It’s not fiscally sustainable and it doesn’t produce high quality schools for all kids.”
