Dear Mayor Kenney,

On 10/5/2019, Joseph McColgan, the husband of Philadelphia Board of Education member Dr. Maria McColgan, published a public post on Facebook in which he used an unfolding environmental health crisis to deride students and educators in the School District of Philadelphia (screenshot taken 10/6/2019), and to make an offer to take students from district schools in exchange for a check to be sent "with your most trusted student."

This is an obvious conflict of interest and ethical problem involving an immediate family member, per Board Policy 007, adopted on August 15, 2019.

As students, educators, parents, and community members, we call for the immediate removal of Dr. Maria McColgan from the Philadelphia Board of Education. Because of this conflict of interest, she can no longer be counted upon to reliably serve the interests of the students, families, and teachers of Philadelphia, and we do not have confidence in her leadership, committee work, or Board votes as a result.
