This is a travesty. What they are doing to our education system is beyond harmful to our children. We have a moral duty to stop this NOW!!!! All special needs parents, do not subject our children to this ludicrous and insane agenda.


In Maryland, among experts, the test was rolled out to explain how in its complexity, it would test whether a child was taught well, or not taught well at all.

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!
