York Community Rallies Against Charter Takeover

School Board members were joined by parents, students and teachers last night at a local church to call for reversing the plan to turn over the District to a for profit charter school company. The courts are hearing the local Board’s appeal contesting the decision of school recovery officer and local businessman David Meckley to go forward with charter plan in spite of the elected Board’s voting against it.   Speakers called for the removal of Meckley who was appointed by Tom Corbett. Parents and community people from both Philadelphia and Reading came in solidarity, all members of the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools-PA.
