As its neediest schools struggle, what can Pa. learn from Ontario’s success?
What little difference four years can make.
Students at Kenderton Elementary have seen five principals and heard countless broken promises in that time.
The school sits in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Philadelphia, and after being kicked back and forth between different managers, it’s in the same sorry state that it was in 2012.
Kenderton’s story may seem extreme, but it illuminates much about how Pennsylvania’s education system treats its most vulnerable children.
Could there be another way?
