The remarks by Dr. Steve Perry, today at the Educational Forum at the August Wilson Center, were strong and 'dead on.'
"Dr. Perry courageously stepped forward in outright opposition to Dr. Lane and Esther Bush who continue to blame poverty and other 'conditions' for not being able to educate all children to high
levels. (Although it appears the the Urban League has proficiency in the 90th %ile.)
Dr. Perry advocated for the closing of all "failing schools."
Sala Udin stood and advocated for transforming all "failing" schools into schools that educated all children successfully.
We CAN make that happen if the Community is UNITED, and PPS changes its current philosophy."
