Corbett bails out Philly Schools

08.07.14 | Bob Price

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett is advancing the states' largest public school system... $265 million to avoid a delay in the start of the school year. Cash-strapped Philadelphia says the money won't guarantee classes will start on time.
Pennsylvania's largest district still has an $81 million budget gap, and officials continue to weigh options including massive layoffs, a delayed start and a shortened school year. A decision will be made Aug. 15.
