Sokola & Jaques Behind Assessment Inventory “Discussion Group”

That was quick!  I should have checked yesterday on the General Assembly website, but they are on recess, so it was out of sight out of mind.  But anyways, what is the point behind Senate Joint Resolution #2, “Directing the Department of Education to study student assessment testing”, when the DOE started this initiative last year?  Oh yeah, to get what is essentially a task force going with key positions picked by the education reform Kool-Aid drinking Governor Markell!  But this task force won’t have any authority or oversight for the initiative but we can create it anyway to give the illusion this has legislative input!  Delaware legislators, STOP, just STOP with the DOE influence within your own ranks.  State Senator Dave Sokola and State Rep. Earl Jaques are the chairs of their prospective education committees.  This initiative came from Governor Markell in an attempt to thwart parent opt-out.  The DOE ran with it, got it going over six months ago and now the two education leaders of the General Assembly want to put this out?  Who are we kidding?  Read the resolution below:

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!
