The board of education has not approved a new charter school since 2018.

According to a new survey of hundreds of Philadelphia teachers, their top concerns are their workload, unrealistic expectations around student achievement, and inadequate salary or benefits.

Lillian Izzard and Amanda Jones have won the school district’s prestigious Lindback Award for principals.

The district has come under fire for failing to present a long-term plan for students if more schools shut down.

Overbrook Educational Center leaders say the relatives who work together bolster the school’s warm, supportive atmosphere.

The teachers union has raised concerns about whether safety protocols are being followed in schools. President Jerry Jordan said he supports a “safe” reopening.

Philadelphia charter prides itself in educating students from some of the city’s most impoverished neighborhoods.
