Delaware PTA Issues Statement On Smarter Balanced Assessment Results

The Delaware PTA just unveiled a press release to their members on their views of the recently announced Smarter Balanced Assessment results.  These are questions everyone in this state should be asking, especially our legislators.  They voted this into state code, and as far as I’m concerned, they can vote it right 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!

  1. When my first born entered first grade I went to PTA meetings and sat as discussion immediately centered and focused on fund raisers… Should we do candles? Or food? Should we use Corgi’s, or another firm.. I didn’t know anything and sat and listened to all the opinions and thought….. this is a waste of my time.

    This year, I urge every parent to go to their PTA’s .. I urge you to ask, “what stand is the PTA going to take on this test?’

    I then urge you to say, “I want all my PTA dollars going towards abolishing this test… ” If they don’t go there, I’m not paying dues…”

    If you are not the one who stands up first, by all means chime in “Me Too.” “Me Too”… When election of officers comes up, all of you need to unite behind the person who first stood up making them president in charge of your chapter.

    Here’s why… The top echelon faces browbeating daily from the corporate media and its flunkies… THEY NEED TO KNOW you are behind them and that for the sanity of all children, we need to abolish this test.

    If you get pushed aside, walk out… This is a one issue year. Whether they sell Corgi’s or Yankee Candles will no longer make a difference to your child….
