As Philadelphia prepares to fully reopen its public schools for the first time in 18 months, the spotlight is again on facilities woes, reports WHYY public TV/Radio on their website.
At the center of the storm is one of the district’s most selective magnet schools — Julia R. Masterman — where a group of parents and teachers claim the School District of Philadelphia is stonewalling their efforts to double-check asbestos remediation projects inside the 88-year-old building.
Some staff worked outside the building Thursday and Friday, for which the district issued discipline and docked pay. Educators returned to their building Monday, one day before schools are slated to open.
