^Totally, totally agree with you on this - though it does stink that it’s a foregone conclusion that we can’t rely on our elected leaders to think about and act in accordance with the interconnectedness you described. We really need a Philly SSP rep at all Council meetings haha.

Also, that’s a great point about grad student family situations; it for sure changes the way I was looking at things in that area.

It just goes to show what kind of impact a good public school can make in all sorts of other areas of concern. I realize the model that Penn used in developing that school has limited ability to be used elsewhere, but damn, at some point you could make an argument that spending piles of cash on public local schools can/could in some neighborhoods pay for itself in increased tax revenue, and do so in just a couple years.

Have now been back to the office. Confirmed that there's no groundbreaking. They told us December. But it's definitely a go which is good news.
