Philly Officials: Release $45-Million So Schools Can Open
Philadelphia officials are calling on Governor Tom Corbett to release $45-million in promised aid so that city schools can open on time.
The state's budget secretary said Tuesday the funds will only be disbursed after the district has negotiated a new teacher’s contract with major concessions.
The state's largest district is broke and has laid off nearly 20-percent of its staff. Superintendent William Hite says he needs $50-million by Friday in order to start classes next month. City and state lawmakers from Philadelphia held a news conference Tuesday urging Corbett to release the money immediately.
They say the district is making major reforms and has met every criteria for the funds to be released.
