According to news reports, Governor Tom Wolf will replace Bill Green, chairman of the Philadelphia School Reform Commission, with fellow member of the commission, Marjorie Neff.


Governor Wolf had asked the Commission not to approve any new charter schools because of the city’s dire financial situation, but it approved five new charters. Neff was the only commissioner to oppose all five charters. She is a former principal of a district high school.


Green says he will challenge his removal in court.
