An article in Wednesday's Inquirer about a City Council hearing on funding for the School District of Philadelphia should have noted that the district received $600 million from city real estate revenue this fiscal year and last year. The city raised the real estate tax last year but reduced the district's share of that revenue from 60 percent to 55 percent.

An article on May 18 about the Church of the Assumption overstated the services provided by its current owner, Siloam. The nonprofit offers counseling, classes, and support services to people with HIV. The article also should have made clear that the $1.5 million estimate for repair work would address only the needs of the building exterior.
