From Newark to Philadelphia: People Demand Local Control

While students in Newark boycott schools demanding the return of local control, the organizations that have been leading the fight to get a November ballot question on abolishing the School Reform Commission were at City Hall today urging Council to honor the wishes of over 40,000 registered voters who sign petitions. City Council acted to table the vote, effectively ignoring this outpouring of democratic sentiment. We will return to Council next week to demand a vote.
