The Delaware State Education Association needs to speak up. Many parents have fought for teachers rights for many years. It is past time you stepped up and did the same for parents. We thank you for supporting House Bill 50, but as I’m sure you are well aware, the battle is not over. The Governor vetoed the bill. I know I ticked you off when I didn’t agree with your support for the assessment inventory legislation, and we are seeing exactly why I didn’t support it now. Legislators, the Governor, and testing supporters are using this as a defense against the override. The plan isn’t even due until June 30th which does nothing for parents this year. We both know Smarter Balanced won’t be a serious part of this conversation. We both know House Bill 50 and opt-out are parent’s reaction to the Smarter Balanced Assessment.
Delaware Parents need your full support in our effort to have Governor Markell’s veto of House Bill 50. Please help us to make this happen. Thank you.
