Mapleton Charter School at Whitehall is officially dead! In November, they handed their charter back to their authorizer, the Delaware Department of Education. The school submitted a major modification request in September to move the school to Dover, but at their first Charter School Accountability Committee meeting, nobody showed up! They did indicate this was going to happen with the charter, but there was no application on the DOE website. If they applied at the end of 2016, and they were approved by the State Board of Education, chances are they would not even open until August of 2018.
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
