Hear from our Board member Janine Yass

We wanted to be sure you saw this opinion piece in this morning’s Inquirer by PSP Board Member, Janine Yass.

Janine makes the case for why investing in what’s working – including the District’s Renaissance school turnaround program – is making a real difference for Philadelphia families and calls on our city’s leaders to embrace those initiatives:

“In the aftermath of the recently approved budget, I hope state and local policymakers will look deeper than the dollars to understand what is really working in successful schools and take the bold but necessary steps to replicate these successes.”

We are grateful to Janine and to all the other education, community, and philanthropic leaders working to create meaningful educational opportunities for our city’s students.  To get involved, please contact us.
