House Bill 279 Would Allow For Public Comment At Any Public Meeting

State Rep. Kim Williams submitted another awesome bill today in the Delaware General Assembly.  House Bill 279 would allow for public comment at any public meeting.  It’s that easy!  I have seen, in the past, where some charters want you to let them know what they are saying ahead of time.  That defeats the whole purpose of public comment!  As well, the State Board of Education doesn’t allow for public comment on action items at their board meetings.  Which is ridiculous.  It’s not like the general public knows where to look for these things.  They don’t get the registrar of regulations mailed to them for Pete-not-Schwartzkopf’s sake!

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!

  1. A lot of these charters require you to let them know what you are going to say. That’s just another form of bullying in my opinion. These pompous charter school board presidents want to screen what is said in a public meeting. That is BULL! Kudos to Kim Williams for sponsoring such an awesome bill.


  2. My issue will still be that they violate the FOIA law when they refuse to respond to comments regarding items discussed at the meetings. Lawyers tell them not to respond. Its all such a mess. Thank you Rep. Williams for doing so much for the state!
