State Board of Education Grills WEIC At Public Meeting W/Them Present But Doesn’t Engage Them…

Last Monday, the Delaware State Board of Education had a workshop to discuss the Wilmington Education Improvement Plan.  Even though some of the higher-up members of the Commission were actually there, the State Board refused to directly ask any of them questions.  There was no public comment at this public meeting.  Instead they crafted a very long letter to WEIC.  Below are the questions, some of which I view to be valid, but others are clearly written into the plan.  As well, their responses are below.  The State Board of Education will vote on the redistricting plan on Thursday, January 21st.  The meeting starts at 9am, which is earlier than usual due to Governor Markell’s State of the State Address.  No public comment can be given at their meeting due to it being an action item based on their rules.

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!
