Delaware DOE Comes Up Short In Their Lobbying Against House Bill 50

From Mike Matthews Facebook page.  I must have been so busy typing my article about the bill passing that I completely missed this.

Best comment of the HB 50 vote came just after the vote, when Rep. Danny Short from Sussex said that there’s some real education discussions we need to have in this state. He alluded to a serious disconnect with DoE when they called him recently to lobby him to not support the opt out bill. They told him “Representative, we can meet you in Wilmington any day.” Only problem? Rep. DANNY Short lives in Sussex. Rep. Bryon Short lives in North Wilmington. DoE couldn’t even differentiate between the Shorts in the House. Huge. Dis. Con. Nect.

All I can say is … WOW!  And these are the people we are supposed to trust to oversee education in our state?

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. Yup! Yup! Teachers laugh all the time about DOE and district administration decisions all the time. They do not communicate, collaborate, and no one can tell the WHOLE truth because they get called in. It is crazy and funny all at the same time!
