No, this isn’t Office Space. That was a TPS report. But it sure does feel like the Delaware Department of Education runs just about the same! Did you ever wonder how the DOE gets all their wonderful knowledge about teachers? They get it from other corporate education reform companies like Pearson! This file is from the infamous FOIA that another individual received early last month. This may shed some light on some things for teachers in Delaware and why the DOE always seems like they are out to get them. Remember, Pearson had a hand in this! Chris Ruszkowski, the director of the Teacher Leader Effectiveness Unit at the DOE, must salivate when he gets reports like this.
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! View all posts by Kevin Ohlandt
