ABSTRACT
Focuses on the settlement of the marathon teacher's strike in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Report that the shutdown caused only slight disruption in the rhythms of city life and hardly any of the people responsible for settling the strike were directly affected by it; Report that about 30 percent of Philadelphia's 13,000 teachers live in the suburbs where public schools remained open throughout the strike; View that public education's shrinking constituency of influential whites is a fact of life in most big cities, which may help to explain why the strike talks dragged on so long; View that the strike helped to rescue the debt-ridden school system from insolvency; Report that public schools in places like Philadelphia serve mostly people who are poor and black and when they shut down, nonpublic school people decide its fate.
