Report: SRC may dissolve itself in November

The School Reform Commission is expected to vote to dissolve itself at its next meeting on Nov. 16, the Notebook reported.

The Notebook obtained a copy of an email from Jeff Hornstein, the chair of the Philadelphia Crosstown Coalition, which is a nonprofit that advocates for education and land use. The email included a plan to dissolve the SRC before the 2018-19 school year and establish a locally controlled, nine-person Board of Education.

Mayor Jim Kenney’s administration is also requesting suggestions for potential members of a Board of Education nominating committee, the Notebook reported.

The SRC must vote to dissolve itself, and Pa. Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera would have to approve the dissolution by the end of this year for a board to be established before the next gubernatorial election.
