It’s The Common Core, Stupid

You got it! Now we just need other parents to get it!


The Delaware Board of Education meeting yesterday was full of controversy and shock….. For one, we are all in shock at the apparent direction which these little kids running the Delaware Department of Education are taking us. The first kid was Mark Murphy. The second was Penny Schwinn.

First, Mark Murphy expressed disdain that teachers were not being beaten up enough in their evaluations. People have to be cheating he postulated.  There is no way all teachers can be effective he stated.  And that shows impetuousness. Because in truth, there is.  You measure student growth.  You take a test in the beginning and you take a test in the middle, and those who don’t pass the middle test, get to try again in the spring.  Then, you rate those teachers on how their students did.  And since the students seemed to do well, the teachers did well as well.

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!
