Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent Discusses District’s Future With City Council Members

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Anthony Hamlet said the district is looking into many ways to close the achievement gap. Things like year-round and Saturday schooling were mentioned Wednesday to make up for learning loss due to the pandemic. Another topic discussed was collaboration. “I’d like to see more collaboration with the athletic associations and groups already working with kids,” said City Council President Theresa Kail-Smith.

Meantime, COVID wasn’t far from Councilman Bobby Wilson’s mind with cases on the rise. “We have yet to see a plan for kids under 12 who are not vaccinated,” said Wilson.

Before parents sign up their children, they need to do their own homework and, except under specific conditions, they should not pursue tutoring. Simply put, most children do not benefit long term from standard tutoring. Moreover, current trends in supplemental education can end up hurting children.
