Charter School of Wilmington Ignoring Or Saying No To Opt Out Requests

Now the Charter School of Wilmington is taking a stand against parents and their rights by not allowing opt-out.  I’ve advised both parents I heard this from to ignore them and do what they feel is best for their child.  One parent sent a letter and never received a response while another was told no.  Yes Governor Markell, by all means, please create a hostile environment in Delaware schools.  Please make it so children feel forced to take a test neither themselves or their parents want to take.  It’s all about the students…yeah right…

When you leave office in 2016 (or sooner- please make that happen), can you please take all your corporate education reform friends with you?  All those lobbyists, non-profits and charter leaders who think high-stakes tests are good for children and the proficiency march to Bhutan must continue?  All those who think parents are just a bug to be stepped on?  Please, make it so!

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. We can make a big stink, but that is their option for being a charter… charters do not have to follow rules… that was the whole point of being a charter… Usually those are financial rules… like buying Mercedes with money intended for kids,.. well, that is not illegal; they are a charter and charters are allowed to do anything they want… That is why they are charters… (and that is why only the top 1% supports them…..
