Rep. Earl Jaques called my son a failure today. #eduDE #netDE

I guess my son with Tourette Syndrome is a failure too. And every single special needs child who is opted out, and every low-income, poverty-stricken child who is opted out. And every smart kid whose parents don’t want their child to feel like a failure when the Secretary of Education and the DOE expect bad scores for a few years…

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,
    God bless you for your ability to do what’s right for your child and all the parents and children in Delaware. Petulance and arrogance are words way to kind to spend on Earl. Your child has infinitely more courage than Jaques and his words bring shame to his position as an elected official.
    Rep. John Kowalko

  2. Wow! It is amazing to me how much people do not know. I am a teacher and a parent and people do not know. It should be a requirement if every public figure to spend a “real” day in the life if a teacher or police men or mail person or trash collector or a parent if a child with special needs. OPEN YOUR EYES!
