Issue In Philly Beyond Football

I JUST READ A LIST OF SCHOOL SAID TO BE CLOSING ALL IN THE CITY. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! PHILADELPHIA HAS SO MANY YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BE BETTER PEOPLE AND CITIZENS BUT THEY ARE NOT GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITIES OR RESOURCES TO FIND OUT WHAT OTHER OPTIONS THERE ARE FOR THEMSELVES THAT IS AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE VIOLENCE AND DRUGS THAT THEY FACE IN THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA IN PARTICULAR. IT IS RIDICULOUS! PEOPLE SAY STOP THE VIOLENCE YET THE GOVERNMENT CLOSES NUMEROUS RECREATION CENTERS IN OUR AREA. "DON'T DO DRUGS" YET THERE ARE NO AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS TO KEEP THE IDLE MINDS OUT OF TROUBLE. GIVE OUR CHILDREN A CHANCE TO SUCCEED! YOU WANT TO HELP THE COMMUNITIES BUILD COMPUTER RESOURCE CENTERS, BUILD INDOOR FIELDS and NOT JUST FOR BASKETBALL(ONLY 10CHILDREN ON THE COURT AT THE SAME TIME), BUILD SMALLER SCHOOLS THAT FOCUS ON OCCUPATIONS AND STOP BEING STAGNANT WHEN IT COMES TO ADVANCING THE TYPE OF EDUCATION AND OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO INNER-CITY YOUTH! THIS IS VERY DISAPPOINTING AND OUR CITY OFFICIALS NEED TO STOP TAKING AWAY OPPORTUNITIES AND START BUILDING AND "CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUCCESS"--Coach Abe and The Philly Football Movement & Impact Players Academy

  1. It's extreme;y hard for me to understand. On one had, the city wants our youth to be our future. But on the other hand, they close down libraries, rec centers, and now schools. Why is it you never hear them mention any cuts that start at the top? Help me understand please!
