Watch: Second school-closings forum in North Philly tonight, after rowdy first one

by thenotebook on Jan 09 2013 Posted in Latest news

Superintendent William Hite and his team had a rough time arguing their case to the massive and raucous turnout at Tuesday night's school-closings forum in North Philadelphia. Should the plan to close 37 schools be approved in the spring, that region of the city would be hit the hardest by closures.

Tonight, at Edison High School, the District will hold its second meeting for the District's North-Central planning area. The schedule for the remaining meetings this month, including which schools will be addressed in each meeting, is below. Watch the meeting live above starting at 6 p.m.

Why didn't any of the district people address the comments of certain speakers? Notably, the woman with a physical disability who struggled to speak and was far from impolite?!
