Special SRC meeting: bond sale, charter agreement

0 comments

A special School Reform Commission meeting is scheduled for today at 11 a.m., and I'll be live Tweeting.  Follow along here, or follow me on Twitter @newskag.

On the agenda: a bond sale and approving the Great Schools Compact, an agreement that would give charter schools more freedom to expand in exchange for more accountability.  This agreement is driven by a possible grant from the Gates Foundation.

The Philadelphia School District is now live-streaming its meetings, too.
