Even cynical me gets surprised by this stuff.
Like Mayor Nutter in his 2007 campaign, Johnson emphasized in an interview that he is a public-school parent. But the school he refers to is the K-8 Penn Alexander School, one of the district's most prestigious schools. It is also supposed to serve only students who live in West Philadelphia's Spruce Hill section.

The pastor lives in Overbrook, about four miles outside Penn Alexander's catchment area.
