Commenter Delawareway posted the following earlier this afternoon:
Kevin, check out the interview on WHYY’s First this week with Markell. He gets a few whammers and gives a sour-faced, lame-ass delivery when answering all of the reporter’s ‘difficult’ education policy digs.
And Jack Markell is going with the crap talk that testing policy is a civil right in defense of ‘not liking HB 50 – the opt out bill.
The governor claims that the legislature hasn’t ‘sent him the bill yet’. FABRICATION. He calls for which bill he wants and, because the DEMs are in charge, he is in COMPLETE control of when he will be facing the rule of the 10 days to decide to sign a bill or not after receipt from the legis.
She claims Governor Markell is full of it! When I called Governor Markell’s office about this, I was promised an answer by the following Monday. That was a week ago. What is he waiting for? For school to be in session so even more parents will be pissed off at him for not signing it yet?
In listening to the interview with WHYY, he had a lot of “uhs” and “uhms” when asked about the opt-out bill. He gave the usual “falling through the cracks” in supporting the civil rights groups. Here’s one for you Jack: my kid is special needs, which is supported by several civil rights groups who do support parent opt-out. Sign the damn bill!
You can listen to the Governor uh and uhm about opt-out here:
