Who should run Philadelphia’s schools?

Join us for a public forum featuring state, city and civic leaders sponsored by Philadelphia Media Network, the Philadelphia Public School Notebook and Drexel University’s School of Education.

Thursday, December 8, 6-7:30 p.m. Drexel University – Behrakis Grand Hall

Creese Student Center 3210 Chestnut St. Philadelphia, PA 19104

It’s been 15 years since the state took control of Philadelphia’s schools and created the School Reform Commission. Since then, the SRC has been a polarizing presence in the city.

With the recent resignation of two members of the commission and the term of a third expiring soon, the future of the SRC and the issue of school governance is once again at the forefront of the civic dialogue. Is the SRC the only model to consider? Should Philadelphia create an elected school board, or should the governing body be controlled by the Mayor? Are there models in other cities that could help us rethink our own school governance? The Philadelphia Public School Notebook, Philadelphia Media Network — owner of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and philly.com, and Drexel University’s School of Education are hosting a public forum on this critical issue.

RSVP – Admission is free, but you must register in advance. Register now, and find out more about the panelists and other details at our registration page.
