Vision 2012, er, uhm, Vision 2015, uh, Ed25, Vision 2025, whatever they are calling themselves these days is apparently still alive. Now they are getting ready to launch Student Success 2025, brought to you, the audience that didn’t demand it, by the Vision Coalition. For those who thought they morphed into Schools That Care, maybe they did, maybe they didn’t. Can anyone keep track of this nonsense anymore?
In any event, they are having a shindig at Delaware Technical Community College in Dover on Wednesday September 16th, from 10-11:15am. It’s free, so you can go and see what the fine folks at Rodel, er, uhm, Vision 20??, what the hell, the corporate education reform supporters in Delaware have up their sleeves now. You can read about it and watch the video they didn’t even put up on Youtube and get absolutely no answers to this plan concocted on them asking 4,000 Delawareans about education. I’m sure it was a survey, or maybe it was the form you had to fill out at the Imagine Delaware forum back in March in order to ask a question. I don’t think Rodel ever put me on their email list (gee, I wonder why) so I really don’t have a clue. But you can see their updated website with some new names on their working groups. I think I see some parsley and a fox. What a complete shocker! And it looks like everyone’s favorite opt-out superintendent is there too! Otherwise it’s the same group of people led by the Rodel guy, waiting to launch the next best thing on us. And how much do you want to bet the DOE will pay for this little fiesta?
And of course they would have this when Delaware educators and students are, you know, at school. And most Delaware parents are, you know, working. So who is the crowd? Who is the target audience here? You guys aren’t fooling anyone!

Arne Duncan will be sending his two kids to private school in the fall. Perfect!
They are currently in public schools in DC; the private school is in Chicago. Is Arne getting ready for a move?
His wife works at the school so he gets a 50% discount, so I would probably do the same thing, but still…
When will this expensive nonsense end? With all of the high priced salaries we pay everyone in the educational industry at the state and local levels, why can’t they develop a loosing plan as good as Rodel?
