Delaware Advocates: Request For A Summit Meeting #netde #eduDE

A Delaware advocate posted this on an interview I did with Kathy Willis this morning, and I think it’s an awesome idea.  So if you are an advocate in Delaware, please respond!  We need to get together, independent of any organizations or groups we do work for, and have a good talk about the world our children live in.  I will be happy to help coordinate this, and if anyone has any ideas or suggestions, don’t hesitate to email me at or post a comment.

Jon’s loving father,

First thanks for creating this blog. I typically do not partake in blogging for a variety of reasons, but since this one is focused on my primary area of advocacy have decided to join in when appropriate.

Since I am posting, I need to state that I am posting as an individual volunteer advocate and parent of a child with a complex disability, and that am not posting as a member, officer or any other capacity or are my comments officially representing the position of any of the multitude of advocacy organizations at the local, state and national levels that I volunteer for.

It was great to read Kathy’s story, and in many aspects mirrors my own.

It does bring up a question as to why all the special education advocates in Delaware to a significant extent work in silos. Yes we may not agree on every item of every issue, but we do agree that our children’s needs are not being met, and that the long term lost opportunity and damage to chidren because of this can to be allowed to continue.

So I will ask, who wants to get together this summer in a SPED advocates summit?

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!
