Still at the mercy of Republican assholes who largely control the budget, but at least there is local accountability now (including the local portion of the budget).

The Philadelphia School Reform Commission is on its way to extinction.

The era of distress was when the SRC controlled it. You can judge which way causation goes.

Education is perhaps the biggest local issue and it was one nobody could vote on.
