There is a very good three-part series on NPR on the Philadelphia public school system. I say this not as an NPR employee, but as a longtime resident of the city of Philadelphia. If you deeply care about education in the United States — or about the future of our cities — take a read or a listen.
The series made me think of this essay by Emma Eisenberg. Every so often, I go back and reread it because it perfectly encompasses why I love the place where I grew up. - Mel (via npr)
