It bothers me when folks complain about a problem without offering a solution, or at least a direction for a solution. Last month, I was guilty. I wrote “School Choice in Philadelphia is a Myth” Well, how could we turn the myth into reality?
Invest in our city’s public schools–send your children there–and you will reap public as well as individual/family rewards.
This was such a long and drawn out process. We loved many of the schools we visited and applied to.
Some financial incentives from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are encouraging the city, charter schools, and PSD to work together
I liked the idea of my children being exposed to different cultures including non-native English speakers.
