Joyce Wilkerson, SRC Chair Statement on Vote to Dissolve the School Reform Commission
As I have said before, there is no more critical issue to the success of our city than the success of our schools.
The District is making progress for students in classrooms across the city. This year has been the strongest start of the school year since Dr. Hite became superintendent and we continue to strengthen the current and future financial outlook of the School District of Philadelphia.
Returning the District to Philadelphia will allow us to build on this progress and stability. The District is ready for its next phase and Philadelphia is ready to take ownership of its schools.
