I’m using this month’s "Insight on Diversity" column to talk about an issue that, while certainly relevant to the diversity discussion, should be important to all of us. Philadelphia’s public education system is in serious financial trouble. Again. With a $304 million deficit, the school system faces its worst budgetary crisis since 1991 and, as usual, it’s not clear when a workable solution will be proposed, much less implemented.

It is time to solve this problem now, and the organized bar needs to lend its voice and our profession’s expertise to the effort.
