Top Ten Delaware DOE Rejected Ideas For Naming Smarter Balanced

In a never seen FOIA from the future, an important memo concerning the Smarter Balanced Assessment will come to light.  Back in the fall, the DOE was tossing around ideas to rename the Smarter Balanced Assessment.  This was the top ten list:

1) Murphy’s Law

2) Smarter 2.0

3) Student Capital Assessment

4) Charter Builder

5) Rigor, Not Vigor

6) Rodel & Friends

7) The GBDJ (stands for Governor, Barbieri, Dukes & Jaques)

8) Penny For Your Thoughts

9) It Doesn’t Matter What We Call It, We’re Still Gonna Take Your Schools And Fire Your Teachers

10) Duncan’s Donuts

And yet, somehow, they stuck with “Smarter” as the hipsters down there like to call it… Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome Moms out there!  We would all be nothing without you!

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!
