Update: Sayre and other schools get textbooks!
Update: Sayre and other schools get textbooks! Several 9th graders at Sayre who are members of PSU have reported that they now have new textbooks in their classes as a result of PSU activism and testimony before the School Reform Commission. Evidently Dr. Ackerman ordered a ‘book audit’ and teams were dispatched from 440 to go out to schools and determine where there we book gaps. The Sayre chapter actually met with Brendan Lee from the Office of School Safety who was a member of one of these book investigation teams. Well as a result, students at West Philly high schools and others across the city now have new textbooks. Go PSU!!
