Chester Matters, the blog that inspired this one, linked to a video about mindfulness in Chester-Upland schools – specifically the nearby Toby Farms Intermediate School – and the challenges the district faces. It’s worth noting that Toby Farms is about the same distance from Garden City as SHMS. Chester Matters offers a better summary of the video than I could, and the video is available on Youtube here. If you want to better understand our neighbors across Ridley creek, this video is helpful. At the end there’s an update on charter schools and the receiver.
As a bonus, the building of new sports fields along the Chester waterfront seems like another positive development for the city.
