Delaware Design Lab is under formal review. For this school, there are no more chances for another one-year extension. I met the Head of School, Christina Alaverez, at the Imagine Delaware Expo and had a very nice chat with her. She explained the school’s philosophy and academics, and I thought it was pretty cool. I asked how students with disabilities could adapt to that curriculum, and she gave me a very straightforward and honest answer. I saw her again after the Formal Review announcements and I told her I was sorry about the designation and I hoped it worked out. I’m actually rooting for this school!
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
