  1. Reviewing poverty levels helps to focus the issue. For me, it is starkly obvious that they need to follow my maxim: "Spend money where you need to and don't spend it where you don't need to." Philadelphia comprises 63% of this list. Pittsburgh and Harrisburg make up another 12% each. A few other schools are on the list which might be considered geographic spillovers from these three. So, why are we turning the whole state upside down when they should be focusing on 3 of the 500 districts?
