Livetweets: school closing vigil, SRC meeting

Ready for a busy evening, Philadelphia School District watchers? 

It starts at 4 p.m., when a candlelight vigil is expected to begin at City Hall.  Marchers are demanding a moratorium on school closings - 37 have been proposed for June. At 5:30, the School Reform Commission meets in its December action meeting.  (Agenda here; resolutions here.) No vote will be taken on school closings, but I imagine with so much focus on the issue, the members will at least address them in some way.  Thirty-five people have signed up to speak at the meeting, so it should be a lively session.

I will be livetweeting, so follow along here, or on Twitter.
