Finally, after the long agonizing wait, we will know how students in Delaware did on the newest state assessment. Today, at 2pm, Governor Markell’s office will release the 2014-2015 Smarter Balanced Assessment results. This has been an exercise in patience Delaware. Today, we know. If you are a credentialed member of the press that is. And when you get them, it is still embargoed information until the official results are issued tomorrow. That’s right, even the press will know before parents. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many bloggers with press credentials either. Get ready for the coordinated spin on these predictable disastrous results… I wonder though, will I still get the official mailing in mid-September since I opted my kid out?
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! View all posts by Kevin Ohlandt
