Mark Murphy Is OUT At Council Of Chief State School Officers

Since Mark Murphy resigned as Delaware Secretary of Education, along with his counterpart in Maryland, Lillian Lowery, they are no longer eligible to sit on the Board of Directors at the Council of Chief State School Officers.  Murphy’s last day is September 30th.  Interim Secretary of Education, Dr. Steven Godowsky, will have to be confirmed by the Delaware Senate.  I do not envy Dr. Godowsky in the weeks and months ahead.  One of the biggest things he will have to deal with is me.  I don’t envy him that at all.  I requested a meeting with Dr. Godowsky and Governor Markell.  We shall see if they respond.  If not, oh well.  I’ll just keep doing what I do.

The Council of Chief State School Officers is a non-profit company based out of Washington D.C.  I will have much more to write about CCSSO in the coming days.

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. That’s why they call them “Chiefs of Change”.. they “change” spots faster than a breakfast to lunch shift at McDonalds.

    When it comes to changing roster spots, no one comes close to equaling the personnel changes among the “Chief of Change.”


  2. Kevin, please keep doing what you are doing and shinning a light on the questionable practices of DOE as well as our individual school districts.


  3. Narcissism Alert “I do not envy Dr. Godowsky in the weeks and months ahead. One of the biggest things he will have to deal with is me.”


    1. Unfortunately, yes. I’m not trying to be narcissistic here. I filed several complaints that will fall on his lap. As well, things I have brought to light are in heavy discussion over there. While it may seem to be a “Hey, look what I did” comment, it’s more of a “I truly hope Dr. Godowsky steers this ship into stable waters.” If you think for one second I wanted things to get to this point, you would be dead wrong. But it has, and the fallout needs to be dealt with.
