Parents at a Philadelphia School District school that might have been turned over to a charter have voted decisively - they want Steel Elementary to remain a traditional public school.
In all, 129 parents wanted Steel to remain a district school, and 54 wanted to it turned over to Mastery Charter Schools.The district announced the results Friday afternoon.
Some parents filed a grievance over the voting process, saying the district changed rules mid-stream.
Another district school, Munoz Marin, may also become a charter. That parent vote was pushed back to June.
