The Executive Director of the State Board of Education, Donna Johnson and Susan Haberstroh, in charge of Policy and External Affairs with the Delaware Department of Education, just presented a review of the Statewide Review of Educational Opportunities to the Delaware State Board of Education. The report fails to mention all the schools in Delaware that have selective enrollment practices that results in not all students given the same educational opportunities. Instead, they are focusing on some of the schools that practice this logic. This review stemmed from House Bill 56, signed by Governor Markell earlier this year. That legislation also put a pause on new charter school applications until this review was done. Public Consulting Group is the vendor for this initiative.
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
