Philadelphia, December 12, 2011 –Mayor Michael A. Nutter issued the following statement after the Pennsylvania Senate earlier today unanimously confirmed Feather O. Houstoun to serve on the School Reform Commission (SRC). Governor Corbett nominated Houstoun.
“Feather Houstoun is one of the most accomplished public servants in the Commonwealth, and I am very excited that she will be employing her considerable talents on behalf of the school children of our great city. The School Reform Commission now has its full complement, and I look forward to working with Feather and all of the members of the SRC. I know that the SRC expects to begin the serious work of recruiting a permanent Superintendent and charting a course toward an educational system that provides a complete education for all students, a result that will benefit our entire city.”
