@GovernorMarkell just doesn’t get it. #SPECED

I couldn’t agree more. First they pass a bill to get the most severely impaired exempt from the Smarter Balanced Assessment, and now they are going to pressure more special ed students to not be exempt? Something is very wrong with this picture. Enough is enough.

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!

  1. JLF- I believe you may have misunderstood SB229, which you mentioned above. That bill does not exempt students who would have taken the Smarter Assessment from being tested, instead it requires the DOE to develop an alternate assessment to the DCAS-Alt in the form of a portfolio assessment. Those most severely impaired would not be taking the Smarter they would be taking the Alternate assessment, which is DCAS-alt and this bill requires the creation of an alternate to the alternate; it does not exempt students from being assesse
