Doc Holodick’s Letter About Smarter Balanced Sent To Parents

Brandywine Superintendent Mark Holodick sent a letter to parents dated February 10th.  Some parents just got the letter this week with a Texas postmark.  Way to educate parents about a huge test over two months later Dr. Holodick!


Hey, I want to know which Delaware educators helped create this train wreck!  Can we get a list of names?


How many will reach the bar?  Not many.  Only 30% from what the DOE says.


This ELA sample could be very subjective, but the human grader may not be objective.  This is a disaster waiting to happen!  Wait, it already is happening…  Delaware Parents: Please support House Bill 50 and opt your child out if you feel this is not the test for your child.

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. Absolutely. They’ve showed up in almost every district across the country controlled by “reformers”… They are for sale, and all a district has to do, is purchase the plan, and out go the letters… Christina, Colonial, Red Clay, and Capital Districts’ parents will not be receiving them, because their heads are not trying to become Mark Murphy’s replacement… Hollowdick is…. I’ll see if I can publish the price… but finding it may now be too difficult; it was back near December when I saw the advertisement.


  2. PLEASE PLEASE tell me you are joking about districts “buying” these letters from DOE or Smarter Balanced. I would be LIVID to know my district used funds to purchase.
