Cell Phone Injury, Philadelphia Schools Low Ratings, West Catholic Prep Doing Well
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 09/18/13 2:05 am | updated: 09/18/13 2:05 am
A new study shows pedestrian cell phonerelated injuries have nearly doubled since 2005. The age group most at risk is 16 to 25 year olds. Injuries include tripping, falling off of walkways, even walking in front of moving traffic. UPenn kicked off their “Share the Road” program this week. It focuses on cell phone use among drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Forty-eight percent of Philadelphia respondents in a new survey by the Pew Charitable Trusts said they believed the state of the financially beleaguered Philadelphia schools system would force families to look for other educational options, such as private schools, religious schools, or charters. Only 18 percent believed Philadelphia schools were doing a “good” or “excellent” job. Seventy-eight percent said schools were “fair” or “poor.” It’s the lowest approval rating in the five years that Pew has been polling on the topic of city schools.

The Archdiocesean Catholic high schools have not only found a new footing, one school – designated to close – has a new name. With donations and determination, freshman class size is outpacing upperclassmen. This freshman class at the re-named West Catholic Preparatory High School is telling a story many didn’t think could be written. The announced closing of West and St. Hubert’s in the city, plus Bonner-Prendergast in Delaware County and Conwell-Egan in Bucks County became a catalyst to find students, raise money – and there’s progress. Chris Mominey, the new Secretary of Education, came from Syracuse to set right the Catholic educational ship.
