Governor Markell, do not even think about acting like our very cowardly Delaware U.S. Sentaors Chris Coons and Thomas Carper did today with their “nay” votes on the opt-out amendment in S.1177. You have a duty to serve the people of Delaware, and we elect the legislators that write our laws. They overwhelmingly supported House Bill 50, our parent opt-out law. The 64 U.S. Senators who voted no on this amendment, including our own, do not realize it is NOT a state right to allow opt-out. It is a parent’s right. Pure and simple. By doing nothing with this bill, you are spitting in the face of every single parent in the state you govern. You are telling them their rights don’t matter, that it’s okay for schools to treat parents like crap. I’ve told you repeatedly, on here, on Facebook, on Twitter, and in an email I sent you that you replied to: your legacy in Delaware is at stake with this one bill. Because it is over this one test, the one you labeled as the “best test Delaware ever made”. Only someone who could somehow profit over a standardized assessment that has been repeatedly proven to be the WORST test ever made would say something so foolish. If you don’t step up for your state, for the citizens you serve, than how can you possibly think of moving on politically? This is not about civil rights groups, and you damn well know that. This is about honor and respect. This is about a parent’s choice. For their children. I won’t come to your house and tell you how to raise your children, so don’t you dare come into mine and tell me this is the best thing for my child. Sign the bill Jack. Sign it tomorrow.
