Philadelphia School District seeks to cut costs with labor talks

Public School Notebook and NewsWorks.org reporter Ben Herold talks about how Boston Consulting Group has been a driving force in Philadelphia Public School District labor talks, school closings, and charter documents. William Penn has directly contributed $1.5 million and helped raise $1.2 million more to fund BCG’s work, and United Way has served as a fiscal conduit for those funds.
