'Here is one of the saddest stories about the hoax of 'reform' that you are likely to read,' Says Diane Ravitch. 'If closing schools is the same as 'reform,' then we have surely fallen down the rabbit-hole into a world where words mean nothing or mean the opposite Lisa Haver, a public school activist in Philadelphia, describes the deliberate process of destroying her city's public schools. The superintendent, William Hite, is doing what Broad Academy graduates do: closing public schools without heeding the views of parents or communities.' There is a reason for the adjective 'public' that comes before 'schools.' The schools belong to the public, not to Eli Broad, Bill Gates, or the current superintendent. Philadelphia needs a leader to save its schools, not to close them down.
