Philadelphia Borrows Money to Start Schools on Time

After laying off 3,783 employees and closing 24 institutions in the district in June, Philadelphia made a last-minute decision to open its schools on time. The city borrowed $50 million to open on Sept. 9 with minimum staffing and sharp cutbacks on extracurricular programs. (Photo: Harry How/Getty Images)
