The Assessment Inventory Committee will hold a meeting tomorrow night at the Delaware Department of Education office at the Townsend Building in Dover at 4:30pm. The meeting will take place in the Library Conference Room. The agenda, as shown below, will go over the DOE’s role in summative assessments. The agenda does not show public comment, but it is a public meeting and public comment was allowed at other meetings so I’m sure this is just an error. Please try to attend and give public comment! Governor Markell’s former Education Policy Advisor assured members of the public the Smarter Balanced Assessment would be a part of the conversation around assessments last June. I have yet to see anything serious from the SJR #2 Assessment Inventory Committee addressing this absolute waste of a test.
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
