“By its actions today, the SRC has betrayed its role of doing whats right for ALL Public School Children; Instead, you have decided to advance the interests of a small number of children at the expense of the vast majority in traditional public schools. These are children who already don’t have counselors, books, toilet paper; they don’t have librarians, recess time or gym. My own daughter didn’t receive a geometry teacher until January!”

“What you are doing is beyond irresponsible. You know, SRC, we don’t have the funding to pay for an adequate education for Philadelphia’s children. Now you are adding millions and millions of additional expenses that will be paid for by children in traditional public schools. You have proven to us once again the you do not represent the interests of Philadelphia, but instead, you represent the interests of big money, like PSP, Walton and Gates, and are on the same side as the Republican Senators that dare to dictate from outstate what Philadelphia must do.”

“Shame, Shame, Shame on you SRC
