Three years ago, my son was accepted into Northeast High School’s Magnet Program. I didn’t know what to expect and was a bit apprehensive because it is the biggest high school in the city, and I worried that he would get lost in the shuffle. I sat in the auditorium at back to school night and listened to the principal, Ms. Carroll, talk about “her school” and “her kids.” She told us that we were welcome to walk into “her school,” unannounced and she would walk the halls with us. It was apparent to me that this woman had nothing to hide, no worries that her school wouldn’t be running up to par on any given day.

More than a year ago, we gathered with neighbors in Tacony to push for tax fairness and we went to work in the General Assembly. Recently, two bills were passed in Harrisburg to improve tax fairness and help hard-working homeowners in Northeast Philadelphia.
