The Inquirer wins well-deserved Pulitzer Prize for Assault on Learning, an in-depth,  multi-part report on violence in Philadelphia Schools. The government, including Democratic Senator Daylin, financed by PSEA, forces mothers to send their kids to these violent schools.

” The seven-part series, “Assault on Learning,” revealed that violence in city schools was widespread and underreported, with 30,000 serious incidents over the last five school years.
