Paymon Rouhanifard on Tuesday discussed what he learned on a three-month “listening tour” he began after he was named to the post in the high-poverty district in August.

He told the city’s Board of Education that low college readiness shows the district must do better.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the superintendent says he also heard about safety problems in the district,

He says one action he’s taking immediately is waiving the $75 background check fee for parents who want to volunteer in the schools.
