Student Success 2025 (Rodel) Brags To State Board of Education About The Awesomeness Of The Vision Coalition (Rodel)

There are terms when a person brags about themselves incessantly.  Arrogance.  Self-Aggrandizement.  Conceited.  This is Rodel in a nutshell.  On Thursday morning, they gave a presentation to the State Board of Education during a Work Session.  This was NOT during the very public State Board of Education meeting, but during one of their beforehand meetings.  Rodel essentially runs the Vision Coalition, who brought us Vision 2012, Vision 2025, Ed25 and now Student Success 2025.  This is one vision I just want to go away and close their eyes forever.  This is the q&a document from the State Board of Education website.

I love how they boast about all these partners in their coalition. I’ve talked to a few of these “partners” and they claim Rodel is only using their name and they were not truly part of this grand and brand new ball game.  My favorite part: “How will this help special education?”  With an answer not written but how I read it “Yeah right.  We’re going to make sure every student has an IEP.  We aren’t answering your direct question but we will word our answer so it looks like we did.  And we will throw in more about personalized learning while we’re at it! Yay Rodel!”

This does answer the question nobody has asked.  There will be the annual Vision Coalition conference in October.  The Student Success 2025 kick-off at Del Tech next month is not replacing that.  Fantastic! Now I can move on with my life and breathe again…

When is this state going to stop taking these clowns seriously?  The State Board of Education and Delaware DOE treats them like royalty.  But that’s because they think they are royalty themselves, all under the foot of King Markell.  Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting the public release of the Rodel Foundation of Delaware 990c 2014 tax form…

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!

  1. They are an advertising company and nothing more. They advertise. The promote their one product. They market… Nothing more; nothing less.

    They are no different from anyother marketing firm, which means we need to be looking at all sides, not take them at face value.

    They are getting paid to promote only one side. That is what their job is. That is all they do… Promote one side.

    The good news for children, is that they are bad at it.
