ACTION United: Where's the money... and the teachers?

a

About a 100 people gathered Tuesday night to discuss the findings of an ACTION United report that found that "the highest poverty schools have the least experienced teachers."

Youth and adults listened to speakers in the auditorium at Berean Presbyterian Church in North Philadelphia. They also waited for School District officials to show up - something that never happened.

Nonetheless, the group said they would take their report and concerns to the School District and demand a solution that helps them improve the education at their schools. At Wednesday's School Reform Commission meeting, Superintendent Ackerman agreed to a request for a meeting from ACTION United representatives.

UPDATE: We swapped the video with a shorter version. This clip is William Browning of ACTION United discussing the report.
