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.
