Nobody Could Have Predicted

One of our local newspapers told us we should all shutupShutupShutUpSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP and let Saint Hite do his job WITHOUT CRITICISM because he knows what he's doing despite all evidence to the contrary. I've never managed to figure out how many people on the editorial boards of our two dailies actually live in the city, but few claim to in their bios. But, hey, it's working!!!
The company hired to place substitute teachers in Philadelphia was supposed to improve its lagging performance and fill half of all daily vacancies by Friday.

But Source4Teachers fell short, again, finding educators for just 19 percent of classrooms missing their teachers Friday. The day before: 22 percent.

The company has never come close to the 75 percent it promised the Philadelphia School District by the first day of classes when it signed its $34 million contract.

As that last paragraph clearly says, they weren't supposed to having "lagging performance" to begin with, and now they can't even meet their Mulligan over a month later.

Clearly what's needed is bigger bonuses for the executives of Source4Teachers. That will provide the necessary motivation. By 2024 they'll meet their new promise of finding subs for 24% of classes.
