The DOE-DSEA Collaboration That Will Make Your Brain Explode!!! FOIA Shell-Shocker!!!!

Every once in a while you see something in a FOIA drop that shocks you.  And then are the times where something just explodes!  This is an explosion.  Back in November of 2014, the teachers belonging to the unions were very upset about the priority schools and the compensation workgroup which would eliminate many of the financial benefits of completing a masters degree.

This was obviously not a good time for the DSEA and other union members to take a survey.  And the executive director of the DSEA, Jeff Taschner, told the DOE this.  Their reaction to this news is very interesting.  You have to read it for yourself.  It makes me wonder just how much collaboration goes on between the DSEA and the DOE that nobody knows about…

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. The results of this could potentially be disastrous for the current DSEA leadership. The slightest implication of collaboration between DSEA and the DOE against the interests of dues-paying members could set off a mutiny. Is the executive director hired by the president or someone else?


  2. Oh, I dunno. It sounds to me like DSEA did exactly what the members wanted; they pushed back. All the rest is DOE. I don’t see any real evidence of inappropriate collaboration here, and I’m actually quite happy that I didn’t get asked to take yet another survey…


  3. And yet it is now April and there is no survey. Has there been a whisper of this survey coming out? The DOE knows THEY would get slaughtered. They can’t afford any more bad press. Why would DSEA not want the survey to come out when it was originally proposed? What does this survey do for DSEA?


  4. It’s all politics. I never planned to major in education and minor in politics… I think any teacher in this country could pull off one hell of a political campsite since we see it and live it everyday.
