A rally for Germantown High School, one of 24 public schools that closed in March 2013. Parents United opposed mass school closings that didn’t improve the academic and personal lives of students. Parents joined thousands who came out over months of hearings on the proposed closings. The opposition successfully knocked down the number of school closings from 37 to 24. The following year, Supt. William Hite would announce no school closings, citing in part that too many students went to schools worse off than the ones they had previously attended. (Photo: Inquirer)
