“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.

Suite 200 3901 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA 19104-3608

    Widely distributed and numerous, birds of prey populate Penn's campus
    Red-tailed hawks and other birds of prey have become a common sight on campus, surprising some unfamiliar with these adaptable birds. While crisscrossing campus this winter, careful observers may have noticed some wildlife species beyond the typical trash-picking squirrels and waddling pigeons.
