What's going on in Philly

Philadelphia has borrowed $50 million to get their schools open in September.And that isn't going to do much more than get the doors opened and the lights on:
“The concept is just jaw-dropping,” said Helen Gym, who has three children in the city’s public schools. “Nobody is talking about what it takes to get a child educated. It’s just about what the lowest number is needed to get the bare minimum. That’s what we’re talking about here: the deliberate starvation of one of the nation’s biggest school districts.”
And debunking the "urban school districts are a waste of money" story is Bruce Bennett.
