Delaware, the home of multiple groups working on the same issues at the same time. Today, the Senate Joint Resolution #4 Education Funding Improvement Commission is meeting for the third time at the Bear Library. There are a lot of interesting names in this room. Former State Rep. Darryl Scott, State Rep. Ruth Briggs-King, Governor Markell’s Education Policy Advisor Lindsay O’Mara (who is probably having one hell of a morning), Executive Director of the State Board of Education Donna Johnson, State Board of Education member Barbara Rutt and more. I see Senator Sokola’s aide, Tanner Polce. I don’t see State Rep. Earl Jaques either, I suppose his aide is there as well.
It will be interesting to see what this group comes up with, along with
Rodel The Vision Coalition. WEIC’s funding will be subject to the Governor’s submitted budget at the end of January. The one that will be submitted AFTER the State Board of Education votes on the plan. To read more about the SJR #4 group, please read this.
