Two Philadelphia Charter School Operators Get Expansion Grants
By Mike DeNardo
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — An influential nonprofit group is giving nearly $3 million to two Philadelphia charter school operators.
“In both cases, the schools have a strong track record of positive academic gains for students, and are led by experienced and committed leaders that are focused on outcomes for kids,” says Jessica Pena, director of PSP’s Great Schools Fund.
Over the last three years, PSP has given $20 million to expand charters, $11 million to district schools, and $3 million to private schools.
