Worst of #Philly1stDay

Yesterday, the students of Philadelphia returned to schools that are understaffed, short on resources, and filled to the brim with students. At the suggestion of The Notebook, many tweeted about their experiences using the hashtag #Philly1stDay.

Here is our collection of some of the tweets that represent #Philly1stDay:

no librarian

capa one secretary

60 percent no councelors

And despite these messages from students from staff (there were many more that this), we recieved this message from Superintendent Hite:

And this from the Philadelphia School Partnership:

Nothing was said about #philly1stday from Mayor Nutter or Governor Corbett.
