Glen Mills Schools announced plans to layoff 250 employees amid allegations and investigations into child abuse at the country's oldest reform school. Last week, state officials ordered the emergency removal of all remained children at the school located about 25 miles west of Philadelphia in Delaware County. Before that many agencies, both local and in other states, had begun to remove children placed at the school after an investigation by the Philadelphia Inquirer exposed decades of physical abuse and coverups. The Delaware County District Attorney as well as Pennsylvania state officials are investigating and reviewing the allegations. "Glen Mills Schools and its board of managers made the difficult decision to begin layoffs. Eighty individuals from various departments across the school were notified today. Additional layoffs will continue this week. In total, approximately 250 individuals will be impacted," said Glen Mills Schools spokeswoman Aimee Tysarczyk. "Glen Mills Schools thanks our employees, many of whom have tirelessly served the school for decades, for their commitment to the school's mission and helping to pave the way to a new path in life for countless young men."

Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill appeared alongside 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, and CNN's Van Jones in front of Philadelphia's Municipal Services Building in Center City on Tuesday, 4/2, to show support to new bipartisan legislation aimed at criminal justice reform in the state. Those three are some of the creators of the REFORM alliance. They were joined by Pennsylvania state Reps. Jordan Harris (D-Philadelphia) and Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland. The legislation in question is House Bill 1925. The bill aims to reduce the amount of time a person is on supervision after prison and would limit the courts ability to extend parole or probation. The bill also focuses on eliminating several technical violations that could land a parolee back in prison. Meek Mill, himself, has spent the past decade on parole/probation stemming from a drug and gun conviction. He has landed back in jail multiple times for violations of that supervision. "I'm only here to use my platform and my voice to speak for the people who don't have a voice," Mill, born Robert Rihmeek Williams, said. "It's a lot of young men actually locked behind the walls and stacked up with probation and trying to do well with themselves and move forward, but they can't because the odds are so great against them." The lawmakers still have to introduce the bill in Harrisburg, but hope to have it voted on this session. For more information: House Bill 1925
