Delaware Opt-Out Update: Red Clay Board Needs To Pass Opt-Out Resolution Tomorrow Night, Show Your Support

Tomorrow night is the Red Clay Consolidated School District Board of Education meeting.  One of the action items is a parent opt out resolution introduced by board member Adriana Bohm last month.  All Red Clay parents who have either opted their children out or are planning to, need to go to this meeting and give public comment and support this measure.  If you are unable to attend, please email the board:

Kenneth Rivera, President:

Michael Piccio, Vice-President:

Adriana Bohm:

Faith Newton:

Catherine Thompson:

Martin Wilson:

Kenneth Woods:

If Red Clay follows suit with Capital and Christina on these types of opt out resolutions, it will be very huge.  Three of the biggest school districts in the state all honoring a parents right to opt their child out of standardized testing without penalty to the student.  Do not follow Markell’s agendas about reducing “other” tests or his ploy today about remedial college class waivers for students scoring well on the Smarter Balanced.  He is doing this because the opt out numbers are growing by the day.  And when a legislator publicly announced they were opting their high school junior out of the Smarter Balanced Assessment, look what Jack did a week and a half later.

Red Clay Board and Parents: Delaware education needs you.  Our 148th General Assembly needs you (even though some of them don’t know it yet).  But most important, our children need you.  Do the right thing!

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!
