Freire Charter School in Wilmington Goes To Court!

Thanks to the News Journal for getting this story out!  I first wrote about the issues the Midtown Brandywine Neighborhood Association were having with Freire Charter School in Wilmington last December.  The school changed locations, which caused the neighbors to become alarmed.  Their biggest gripe was the number of parking spots in their neighborhood, which are already in low demand.  The matter escalated in March when then Head of School scuffled with some protesters during an Open House the school was having.  Porter was eventually charged for the assault, but no trial date has been set at this point in time to my knowledge.

Their neighbors filed an injunction to stop the school from opening in August, and even though the heart of the issue won’t happen for another two years when the school expands and the parking spots leased from the building owner would overflow in capacity based on the new employees, the judge doesn’t want to kick the can down the road over an already established school.  The hearing date will be on July 31st.

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!
