I am a parent of two DE public school children, I am a former DE PTA president, a former Red Clay school board member, I am currently a DE State Representative and Vice Chair of the House Education Committee.

Writing and supporting speculators and snake-oil salesmen who offer unproven solutions (speculations) to real problems is a convenient road to navigate guaranteeing a 50-50 chance of being right or wrong while sucking up all of the spare change (taxpayer money) littering that road.
