Not really related, but right around the time I left Philly back in 1988, there was huge local news story about some local millionaire who had chosen a city school with a mostly minority student body and had made a public committment that he would pay for the college education of every child then in that school.
That was 23 years ago. I wonder how that worked out?
I remember that. Don’t know how it worked out in the end, but believe only about half the kids finished high school.
