ISSUE | SAFETY Register bicycles An Inquirer photo on Sunday of cyclists riding on a ramp near the Schuylkill told a lot about cyclists. Despite signs clearly stating that cyclists should walk their bikes on the ramp, two of three bikers shown are riding and only one is walking. That is about the rate of compliance with rules throughout the city.
PHILADELPHIANS ARE passionate about fighting for quality public education. We have marched in the streets countless times. We deserve high quality public neighborhood schools and a school district that listens to us as students, parents and community leaders - and we are willing to fight for it. Unfortunately, the school district has shown again that it is unwilling to take our voices into account and is pushing through a school-closure plan in Kensington.
