The Inquirer wrote a report today about a (mostly) closed-door meeting about the future of Thomas Creighton School in Crescentville. The meeting (which also featured a dinner for those in attendence) was paid for by the Kenny Gamble-founded Universal Companies, whose track record when it comes to doing things is spotty at best. According to the Inky, “Rahim Islam, Universal’s president and chief executive officer, told the parents it was in the students’ best interest for Universal to run Creighton … Islam told the parents — about 10 members of the Creighton School Advisory Council were present along with about 10 children — that they needed to attend Monday’s meeting at district headquarters to express their support for Universal.” We think we found their theme song.
Also according to the Inky, the meeting was organized by an “education advocate” who calls herself Mama Gail. Adding to this whole insanity is the fact that the Inky failed to make the connection that one of our readers did: Last August, in The Inquirer, Mama Gail was quoted blaming that little rumbling of the Earth on the removal of Arlene Ackerman. Gail said, “It’s no coincidence that the earth started to move the other day in New York and Philadelphia … Unless this is done right, there are going to be a whole lot more storms.”
You know what, she was right, it’s just that she’s behind this storm.
