Philly School District Plan Would Close 64 Schools, Dismantle Central Office

The plan - subject to public comment and commission approval - would close 40 schools next year and 64 by 2017, move thousands more students to charters, and dismantle the central office in favor of "achievement networks" that would compete to run groups of 25 schools and would sign performance-based contracts.
