Word around the town is Delaware Senators Greg Lavelle and David Sokola exchanged words at that New Castle school district meeting yesterday. It’s beginning to look like the WEAC recommendations have ruffled a lot of feathers lately. And the power struggles begin anew in the 148th General Assembly. My little birds are also telling me about another power grab occurring in our state between two sides. One team is feeding right into the hands of the other team who are just sitting back and watching it happen.
Meanwhile, our Common Core Smarter Balanced loving Governor was very angry about the RCEA and CEA press conference on Thursday night. Education has been his baby and someone snatched that baby. Even though he stole the baby from its original owners, he didn’t like the snatch back. This is after an already bad week for Jack when he was forced to use the words “opt out”. As well, he had to hear all the talk about his latest whipping boy and his very stupid comments about parents and students.
We have a lame-duck trying to quack, but nobody is liking the noise. The cracks in the foundation are getting bigger and bigger, and it is all about to crumble. Just go to Delawareonline’s Facebook page and look at the recent comments concerning education. Aside from the Delaware DOE employee and a couple other strays (like one person who was in charge of a human capital project), most of the commenters are well aware of what is going on.
