Governor Markell gave a cheerleader rah rah rah speech before the 2012-2013 school year began. I love the “rigorous” oversight of charter schools and how he wants “every child, even those with disabilities to have a shot at success”. These exciting results from our legislature culminated yesterday in the House passage of the worst testing since, well, ever. Thank you Jack, but I am not buying the “core commitment” you speak of in this video.
I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools! View all posts by Kevin Ohlandt
