PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A vacancy on the Philadelphia School Reform Commission may soon be filled, with a familiar face.

Governor Tom Corbett is nominating Pedro Ramos, a former member of the Philadelphia Board of Education and onetime city managing director, to fill a spot on the SRC that had been vacant since February.

SRC chairman Robert Archie was delighted to hear that Ramos, who graduated from Central High School and the University of Pennsylvania, will be returning to his educational roots.

“I think he brings insight,” said Archie.  “As former managing director he has insight into the budget needs, and how the legislative process unfolds.”

It also brings to two the number of Hispanics on the SRC.  Ramos’ nomination will have to be approved by the Pennsylvania state senate.

The SRC is responsible for setting the policy direction of the Philadelphia school district.
