Judge approves charter cut, more funds for Chester schools. But can he do that?

By Laura Benshoff for NewsWorks on Oct 13, 2015 12:52 PM

After two months of negotiations and hearings, Delaware County Judge Chad Kenney has approved a drastic plan to rework the Chester Upland School District's finances.

The next question is, can he do that?

Chester Upland, one of a handful of financially distressed districts in Pennsylvania, has a state-appointed receiver in charge of charting a course for the district that will pull it out of a cycle of debts and deficits.

In August, receiver Francis V. Barnes introduced a plan that included cutting charter tuition payments for special education students from $40,000 a student to $16,000, the amount set by a bipartisan committee on special education funding.

After a series of rejections and revisions, the district struck a deal with the three largest brick-and-mortar charters to reduce that amount to $27,028 per student. Kenney approved a plan with that provision, and he ordered the state to cough up an additional $20 million in basic education funding, the line item that makes up the bulk of yearly state contributions to school districts.

As part of the order, charter schools must also waive payments they were still owed by Chester Upland, incurred during the 2014-15 school year, a total of about $8.7 million.

I have heard of him before, but after watching the documentary “Last Days of Left Eye” 1
was turned on to the full story
about Dr. Okaben He is a man who has the Cure for AIDS, Cancer, Sickle Cell,
Herpes,warts,lupus, Diabetes and every kind of
illness, through a whole foods vegetarian diet and natural herbs, what he calls Electric
Foods. He never went to school,
college or medical school but has thousands of testimonials of healing people with HIV and
AIDS, Cancer and several other
illnesses. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC was cured of Herpes by him and she was so moved by
his knowledge that she went on
to spread the word about him in every way she could. She also opened a Cultural/Healing
Center for Children in Honduras
before she passed away tragically. This all inspired me that i had to contact Dr. Okaben,
because i was having herpes
which could not be cure but was only managed, when i contacted Dr. Okaben, he sent me some herbs which  I  took, and now i can tell you, i have be totally cured of Herpes, Please if
you have any form
of illness especially STD,hemorrhoids,Infertility,HIV etc. you can contact him on.
