Less than a day after the Philadelphia School Reform Commission picked Mosaica Education Inc. to run Martin Luther King High School as a charter school next year, the company has said “no thanks.”
The Atlanta-based company notified the school district Thursday evening that it would not be taking the job it has been lobbying for over the last several weeks.
New Jersey-based Foundations Inc. has managed programs at King for the last seven years.
Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Phila.) was against the decision to remove Foundations from the school.
