On Thursday, August 20th, the Philadelphia School Reform Commission, the appointed body that has been managing the School District since 2001, held a public Action meeting. A number of measures were adopted which advance the privatization agenda of corporate education reformers begun in 2001 and has kicked into high gear in the last few years.
Here are ten videos of testimony by APPS members and other community members about the SRC’s plans. Videos are in the order of the testimony at the meeting. (One video is on page 2.)
