I may not always agree with Devon Hynson, but for the most part, he hits a bullseye!
This is the reality in Delaware. And like he said, it’s not all charters. It’s not all schools. But I don’t think the solution is necessarily to send your kid back to a traditional public school. I think the time is come to hold the schools who say they can’t, or won’t accommodate, to the fire. It’s not a choice for public schools to pick and choose things that go against state and federal law. And if the DOE won’t do anything about it, than every single parent who goes through this needs to stand up and shout it to the world. They are getting OUR taxpayer money. Why should we leave? They need to be held accountable for this stuff, not all the stupid assessments. It’s not choice if the student isn’t getting everything they would be entitled to at a regular school. It’s discrimination. And traditional schools, you don’t get to pick and choose based on what’s best for the district or your budget, you pick what’s best for the individual student. No more!
