Patrick Wahl Launches Youtube Video Called “Why I’m Suing The Brandywine School District: It’s Not For My Kid, It’s For Your’s”

Patrick Wahl, the father of Joseph Wahls, is not giving up.  He wants the world to know what happened to his son in the Brandywine School District.  You can read about it here.  If you want to really see Wahl open up, with a no holds barred video addressed to the world, this is a must-watch!  You really need to watch the whole thing to see the “inserts”.  Wahl clearly explains his perception of the events and why he is suing the district.  I can’t picture the leaders of Brandywine releasing a video with their side of things.  But it would be pretty cool to watch!

Yeah, that wasn’t the video he put up.  But I thought it was a fitting intro.  Can they work it out?

I don’t predict this story will end anytime soon…

Still, it is possible for a US ed secretary to ignore ESSA language and try to do as he pleases…
