"Parents want money spent in schools to reduce class sizes and restore librarians. During the Eagles championship parade, I took a video camera to the streets to ask people what they would do with $20 million for the schools. We would make sure every child had access to school plays, choirs, foreign language instruction, sports, debate teams, and field trips before putting a dime into virtual classes. We want public funds spent bringing joy back to schools. Parents don’t want data-driven education. We don’t want our children treated as human capital. Our schools are not profit centers for predatory social impact data-mining ventures. The interests of students, teachers, and parents must take precedence over for-profit interests as well as those of their non-profit partners. Local control of Philadelphia’s schools means nothing if corporations control classrooms through contracted ed-tech vendors. The voice of the people must come first." The SRC will meet at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, at 440 N. Broad Street.

    Commentary: Philadelphia's children deserve human teachers, not algorithms and data-mining
    On Thursday, the Philadelphia School Reform Commission will vote on two resolutions. One (B-12) allocates $10 million for virtual classes and adaptive learning systems, while the other (A-7) awards Pearson $9.5 million for cloud-based services that collect data and deliver educational content to students.

Steve Paul works tirelessly for Philadelphia'...

Steve Paul works tirelessly for Philadelphia's City Hall, and does all the extra credit, too. Help him get students from Edward T. Steel Elementary in to see Black Panther at the UA Main Street 6 in Manayunk. Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Sterling K. Brown. #youneverknow "Media plays an important role in shaping the way we understand race and ethnicity as part of our history, our social institutions, and our everyday lives. Moreover, positive black representation on television and film screens plays an important role in the struggle against the anti-black bias we face in this country. For many, viewing self-determination means realizing self-determination. After decades of asking for a modern black superhero, we finally got what we've asked for! There is no doubt that it is a rare opportunity for young people, especially those who are often marginalized. Help send the over 500 amazing students at Edward T. Steel Elementary School! to see The Black Panther movie. The theater we have contacted is UA Main Street 6, which is located on 3720 Main St, Manayunk, PA 19127. The price to rent an entire theater is about $10.28 per person. our goal is to send 100 per day for 5 days. Cost breakdown: Transportation (two 50 Passenger Van) $400.00 per day for 5 days ($2, 000.00) Movies: -$10.28 per child ($5,551.20) ***Any amount over our goal will go towards fundraising for a second school in North Philly.*** About Edward Steel Elementary School: Edward Steel Elementary is home to over 500 students predominately from the Nicetown neighborhood. These students are Philadelphia's youth, full of potential, unimaginable possibilities and of one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in the city. Originally the school organized to take 50 students but we think we can do better! Please give what you can so we can send every child for this historic movie event."
