Shocking Response To Citizen’s Federal FOIA Request Concerning Priority Schools

A Delaware citizen forwarded me this information.  They wished to remain anonymous.  What they received from the US Department of Education was very perplexing.

If this is to be believed, there was no communication between the US Department of Education and DE Secretary of Education Mark Murphy or Governor Markell between January 1st, 2014 and December 23rd, 2014.  Not even one.  Hmmm…

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. Kevin, when I opened the doc I could see the name of the Delawarean to whom it was sent (just highlighted black, with white text). Can that be changed?


  2. This letter just means that any such communication was not directed by US DOE to Jack Markell or Mark Murphy. Which other DDOE staff could have received such communications–Penny Schwinn?

    And on the other hand, if our DOE IS acting on its own without federal pressure, why in heaven’s name are they putting Wilm. public schools through this? If the conclusion we can reach is that all this nonsense was hatched in Dover, that’s even more reason to stop it–in response to DE citizen outcry (750 sig. petition against the DOE’s “priority schools” approach, etc.).
