Town Hall Meeting on Local Control of Schools

townhallpic
Forty Thousand Philadelphia registered voters signed a petition this Spring to put the question of returning our schools to local control and abolishing the School Reform Commission on the ballot in the form of a non-binding referendum. But before this can happen City Council and the Mayor have to approve. Come to the town meeting to find out how returning our schools to local control can improve education and how we can bring pressure on our elected officials to let the people vote on this important question.
