    A new report on charter schools confirms some of the concerns lawmakers, school officials, parents and others have had about the state of education in Pennsylvania. However, it also points the way toward improving it.

Penn students affected by University Realty delays move in, but continue to face housing problems

In December, the company provided moving services to 64 displaced students living in temporary units at the Homewood Suites hotel located at 4109 Walnut St. or Vue32 located at 3201 Race St. Tenants who did not want to use their services were given a budget to hire third-party movers instead. 

This article has 2 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

While residents were originally told that they could move into their apartments at 4046 Chestnut on Aug. 15 last year, construction and electrical issues delayed the move-in seven times. University Realty, the leasing company, finally allowed them access to their units on Dec. 14.
