There are some "first day of school" jitters in Philadelphia, but it's not the usual kind. This opening day is with far less support-staff.
South Philadelphia High School mother Tamara Brown says she worried about how her son will blend into a new high school, after his old one was closed over the summer.
"I'm very concerned about the many students in the class with one teacher, so I am very concerned about the fighting and having him learn and everything like that," said Brown. "I want him to have good grades and have a good education."
