Protests, charters, SRC: livetweeting

UPDATE, 4 p.m.

Well, that was quick! Just received word that the planned protest of a recommended charter non-renewal for Discovery Charter School has turned into a "victory party."  Apparently the district and the school have reached an agreement and the recommendation is now to renew Discovery's charter.  More details to come.


Hi, all--

Never a dull moment for the Philadelphia School District.  Stay tuned for multiple rallies/protests (anti-charter expansion, pro-charter renewal), plus what is sure to be a lively School Reform Commission meeting, with 47 speakers and a number of charter renewal votes.  I'll be live tweeting, as usual - follow along here, or on Twitter.  The rally action is scheduled to start at 4; the SRC meeting is scheduled for 5:30.
