As expected, Bill Green’s first meeting was a grand display of all the pugnacious activism that Philly can muster, with protesters chanting “Save Our Schools!” and hollering as Supt. William Hite tried to lay out his agenda for the coming year. “I want to save our schools that’s why I’m here. I agree completely. We may not agree on the means but we certainly agree on the end,” Green said. Green and Hite have said they may impose new work rules on the teachers union to begin repairs to the district.
