The Wilmington Education Improvement Commission is proposing a plan for funding of the redistricting effort currently in the planning stages. WEIC wants the state to look at increasing property assessments to raise more funding for our schools. How do you feel about this? With Wilmington schools as a test for a weighted formula funding, which would start there first, will Kent and Sussex counties support this without more funding going to their own schools? WEIC does not have any true stakeholder input from Kent or Sussex right now. I urge every Delaware citizen to read the below document and let WEIC know how you feel about this, as well as your state legislators. Because if the State Board of Education passes this plan, it will go to the 148th General Assembly for a vote.
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! View all posts by Kevin Ohlandt
