The Center City Schools Initiative
This chapter discusses the Center City Schools Initiative (CCSI), from its origins with the Center City District (CCD) to its promotion into a partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, to its reception within Philadelphia’s political field. It describes the strategies the CCSI used to draw middle- and upper-middle-class families from Philadelphia’s revitalized downtown into the schools. The chapter shows how the partnership between the CCD and School District of Philadelphia elevated market principles and altered institutional policies and practices in both subtle and obvious ways.
