Kowalko FOIAs “Alan Jackson” and His Attorney, Surprise News At The End!!!!

Delaware State Representative John Kowalko and DelCog President John Flaherty sent another FOIA request to Governor Markell’s office.  This time they want all of the Governor’s “Alan Jackson” emails from March 27th.

I sent this out this morning to Governor Markell’s office as well:

In early December of 2014, I filed a FOIA request for all emails between Governor Jack Markell and the following individuals: Paul Herdman of the Rodel Foundation, Joel Klein of Amplify Inc., Michelle Rhee and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan from January 21st, 2009 until the present.  I did receive the request on January 12th, but I found it sufficiently lacking.  As part of another FOIA request from this office, another individual received emails between Governor Jack Markell and Michelle Rhee however there were none in this FOIA request.  Since information has recently been made public concerning a third state e-mail address for Governor Markell under the pseudonym Alan Jackson, I am hereby requesting all emails from “Alan Jackson” in regards to this prior FOIA request be included as part of this original FOIA request.  As the original FOIA coordinator Danielle Blount esq. informed me, I was not to be charged for this FOIA, I believe it would be necessary to continue to honor that.  While there are moments in this FOIA file where Alan Jackson is referenced, it is only when the Governor is actually forwarding e-mails from his official email to this Alan Jackson email.  None of the emails actually show where it was addressed to “Alan Jackson”.  Thank you, and I look forward to receiving the remainder of this FOIA request.

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!
