    Penn student researchers dig into the University's unaddressed ties to the slave trade
    In recent years, as various universities have stepped forth to acknowledge early institutional ties to slavery, Penn has remained steadfast in asserting that it does not have a history of direct involvement with slavery or the slave trade. Now, new undergraduate research places this assertion into doubt.

“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.

    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.
