Bartoli, Jill Sunday
Talking Points, v14 n2 p7-10 Apr-May 2003
Notes that the state of Pennsylvania has one of the poorest records for equality in public school funding. Describes how administrators in the Harrisburg School District, one of the low-funded urban school districts, attempt to promote literacy and lift students from low-income families out of a failure cycle that many assume is irreversible. Explains how the administrators are providing their students with broad health, welfare, and literacy supports. (PM)
