    EDISON The Phila. Daily News is reporting that all 20 Philly schools that Edison is slated to take over next week have begun shipping supplies back to the warehouse.

    Math workbooks, Spanish textbooks, science lab materials, art supplies, and gym equipment were loaded onto two trucks yesterday at one Edison school, the James R. Ludlow elementary school in North Philadelphia, district CEO Paul Vallas said.

    “Unless you have some other money to pay for it, we’re taking it back,” a truck driver told the principal, according to Vallas.

    Adam Tucker, a spokesman for Edison, yesterday said the supplies were picked up because his company’s $11.8 million contract is not enough to pay for them…

    [School District CEO] Vallas said the district will stock the school by Thursday with any supplies needed but missing.

    The cost for the replaced supplies will be subtracted from Edison’s contract, he said.
