So many families and educators rely on the safety, education and well-being of their children and students. By closing Bok the SRC and School District of Philadelphia will be putting many students at RISK. Many Bok students’ neighborhood schools are unsafe and so is South Philadelphia High School. For many decades Bok and Southern have been rivals. If you are a South Philadelphian you would know this. We ask the School Reform Commission and the School District of Philadelphia to think and take Edward W. Bok Technical High School off the recommended list for closure. We know the School District is facing tough times but putting a price on SAFETY should not be what is happening!!!
