Relocating

    An early morning fire yesterday gutted West Philly’s Global Leadership Academy, leaving students with no place to learn. Naomi Johnson Booker, CEO of the Parkside charter school, says she’s searching for a new location and hopes to resume classes next Tuesday.
    In the meantime, since the school can’t be salvaged, Booker is trying to gather school supplies and arrange museum trips for the students, who remain out of the classroom.
