Philadelphia Still Facing Teacher Crisis Seven Weeks After School Year Started.

Philly (PA) (10/20, Graham) reports thousands of Philadelphia students still do not have permanent teachers seven weeks after the school year began. Teacher union president Jerry Jordan said Superintendent William R. Hite Jr. is responsible for the 190 teacher vacancies “either through neglect or incompetence.” The district defended itself by explaining that part of the problem is the district is trying to reduce “leveling”, the process of forcing teachers to transfer schools based on changes in school enrollment.
