You will never stop @elliotted from trying to twirl. Never.
Our strategy at Quartz is pretty simple: Make good stuff that people want to share. In designing the site, we’ve tried to stay true to that mission by getting out of your way and letting the stories shine. Ads, meanwhile, aren’t shunted to the side in small boxes but included in our stream,…
You explain that to Han…
“Remember she called Mandela a terrorist and took tea with the torturer and murderer Pinochet.
How should we honor her?
Let’s privatise her funeral. Put it out to competitive tender and accept the cheapest bid. Its what she would have wanted.” - Ken Loach

This is an absolutely heartbreaking image, but it is an image that needs to seen by everybody in Philadelphia. Pictured here are the faces of those affected by the school closings in Philadelphia. Twenty-three schools are closing, one of which being University City High School. Every member of the School Reform Commission, every citizen of Philadelphia, Mayor Nutter, all of Pennsylvania’s Congress, and Governor Corbett need to see how the school closings are affecting the very people we’re supposed to be grooming to be the leaders of tomorrow.
This state has it completely backwards. Governor Corbett has it completely upside-down. By cutting school funding to next to nothing a few years ago, Governor Corbett has unofficially started to destroy the School District of Philadelphia, which has been teetering on the brink of disaster for a long time. Instead of helping the kids of Philadelphia who need lots of love, support, and education, the politicians of this state and even this city to some extent have thumbed their nose at them, in essence saying that they don’t care about the kids of this city, their schools, or their teachers.
Share this image. This is the face of school closings. This is the new face of public education in Philadelphia.
h/t to stephaniesilver for the image
