Councilman: Philly should repay teachers who compensate for propagandize …
December 11, 2016 - School Supplies
It’s a informed story in Philadelphia classrooms — teachers spending hundreds or thousands of dollars out of slot to yield simple supplies.
City Councilman David Oh wants to change a narrative.
In a check introduced final week, Oh due that a city emanate a account where teachers who have paid for propagandize reserve can apply for reimbursement.
The fund, as Oh sees it, would offer dual purposes. The apparent initial idea would be to chuck financially strapped teachers a lifeline. The second, Oh said, would be to give Council a some-more accurate image of what it takes to batch a city classroom.
“We in city government, we don’t accurately know how most it costs to work a schools since we don’t have any approach of tracking how most personal grant is being done for required items,” Oh said.
Oh modeled a payment setup on a city’s informative fund, that grants income to humanities organizations. The city puts only over $3 million in a informative account any year.
Oh envisions a city dispersal $1 million for his due clergyman payment fund, though he pronounced that guess isn’t formed on any convincing figures. That’s again, he said, since there’s no constant approach of calculating what teachers spend.
