Another Philadelphia School Reform Commission member is stepping down and Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett is ready with a new appointee.
Sources say Corbett will appoint Feather Houstoun, former head of the William Penn Foundation, to the empty seat. His first nomination, Pedro Ramos, is awaiting Senate approval.
Former SRC Chair Robert Archie and member John Irizarry both resigned last month, making way for Rutgers-Camden Chancellor Wendell Pritchett and author/educator Lorene Cary — both appointed by Mayor Michael Nutter.
Houstoun left her role at the William Penn Foundation in June.
