If I’ve written an article about a Delaware Charter School, Rodel or the Delaware Charter Schools Network, you can now find all of it in one convenient place. Most of the articles are on there, but I still have some to add. The major stories are all there. And each charter school has their own section from earliest to latest. Eventually, I would like to add other blogs stories about Delaware charter schools. But that is not today! For now, you can go to the Delaware Charters/Rodel/Vision tab at the top of this page. Going through this, I realized it is very hard for someone to get all the information about one school in one shot. Now you can. Unlike the DOE, I don’t mind putting everything in one easy to find spot!
For the naysayers who say I beat up on charters all the time, I think the ones with the most articles are the ones that have been in the hot seat in the past year for one reason or another. Most of the time it is either financial or organizational reasons. There are many I have never written anything bad about them. Some of had some minor stuff. I don’t write bad stuff about the kids who go to charter schools. I write about the adults who can’t get their act together at the charters. I think all public schools in Delaware, traditional and charter alike, are in a tough spot with Smarter Balanced and Common Core. The accountability gurus over at Delaware DOE and the corporate education reformers at Rodel, Delaware Charter Schools Network and the Longwood Foundation are a different story. They are the ones putting all of Delaware’s public education students at a disadvantage with their false ideology. At the end of the day, it comes back to two things: it’s not good for students and for them it’s all about the money.
