Philadelphia School District Closing 40 Schools in June!

What is happening to our school districts?

Philadelphia School District is scheduled to shut down 37 more schools in June 2013. I say additional because at the beginning of the school year, the district announced that they were closing 24 schools. In addition, The Archdiocese Catholic Schools of Philadelphia have closed 45 elementary schools and four high schools.

Not in a million years did I imagine that Education would be affected by the economic downturn of our country. What happens to the teachers, counselors, administrators...and most importantly the students?? Do you know that the average public school classroom has approximately 30 students? Yes, you've read correctly, 30! Whose to blame here? This is just insane.
