The Philly Tribune reports on the grave situation still facing Philadelphia schools, as highlighted by Superintendent William Hite. Hite noted the urgency of receiving an additional $216 million in funding to maintain current instructional levels, which he says are less than adequate already. The system is operating under a total shortfall of $400 million.
“Short of the $216 million, our schools will go from insufficient to just empty shells that do not represent what I would consider a functioning school,” said Hite, as quoted this morning in the Tribune.
