Thanks to PCCY report on neighborhood high schools.  Vallas bled neighborhood high schools with the  creation of "small, magnet schools," taking magnet programs out of most neighborhood high schools (except Northeast HS), etc.  Hite added his "innovation" high schools - another drain on neighborhood schools.  Then, charters also drain neighborhood schools and "dump" students who don't fit (this includes Mastery, Universal, Aspira, etc.)

Now, Freire is opening another charter witth the largess of  Phila School so-called partnership.  They will take students from Strawberry Mansion's catchment.  Over 35% of the students at Strawberry Mansion have an IEP.  Will Freire?  Highly unlikely.

PCCY says we have to "invest" more in neigborhood schools.  There has to be pension reform first so that 95 cents out of every new dollar does not go to PSERS.  When they estimate the cost of educating students, they need to include the cost of pensions and health care benefits, even if the state is kicking the can down the road and not putting aside money for any of that.  Otherwise "investing" more in schools is just an Enron scam.  .
