18 schools in Philadelphia will undergo restructuring

Jan. 27, 2011
Charter groups will take over 8 campuses

From The Philadelphia Inquirer: The Philadelphia School District will radically restructure 18 chronically failing schools in September, with changes in how each runs and who works there.
Ten schools will be operated by the district, receiving a cash injection of at least $1 million each. An additional eight will be given to charter organizations. Most of the schools will see a change in principal and at least half of its teaching force, with all staffers forced to reapply for their jobs. School days and years will be longer.
