Philadelphia: The good and the bad
Author: Joshua Thompson
The Philadelphia Inquirer published an excellent editorial Sunday. I stumbled upon the article after it was re-printed in the Sacramento Bee today. Granted, any editorial that quotes from Federalist 62 is bound to be one of my favorites, but, it's also great to hear The Inquirer ask Supreme Court nominee Sotomayor to explain how she missed a deicision that "seems so obvious" in the Ricci case.
I hope The Inquirer next takes a look at this outrageous, race-based policy in their back yard. The Philadelphia School District determines transfers and other teacher placement decisions on the basis of their applicants skin color. For example Art. VIII. C.5.1 blatantly requires that "The teacher of the appropriate race with the least seniority" will be the first transferred.
Troubling, to say the least.
