The national debate over so-called ‘education reform’ has come into sharp relief in Philadelphia, where a pro-charter, non-profit organization has offered the cash-strapped city school district up to $35 million to enroll an additional 15,000 students in new charter schools.

The one-time gift from the Philadelphia School Partnership (PSP), to be given over three years, would consist of up to $25 million for the district’s charter costs and a separate $10 million “to pay for in-house turnaround efforts,” according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Philadelphia School Reform Commission, which oversees the city school district, is deliberating over 39 charter school applications on which it could vote as early as next week.
