"In 1996, Visit Philadelphia set out to prove the naysayers wrong. The words Philadelphia and fun do belong in the same sentence and people do want to come here. I am proud of the work that my staff and I have done, and I am happy to have made a difference for a city I love.” http://philadelphiafreepress.com/visit-philadelphia-founder-to-retire-this-year-p7089-1.htm Philadelphia -- visitphilly.com

“We want a bill that creates a predictable environment for charter applications and renewal and that low-qualities are shut down or never opened.” ICYMI: Rep. Jordan Harris, Rep. James Roebuck Mastery Charter Schools and others discussed the new Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) report on Charter Schools. http://ucreview.com/new-report-opens-debate-on-how-to-regulate-pa-charter-schools-p7637-1.htm

    New report opens debate on how to regulate PA charter schools
    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. Last week, the nonprofit group Public Citizens for Children & Youth released data comparing the performances of public and charter schools across the state.
