Kowalko Talks House Bill 50, Opt Out, & The Will Of The People On Delaware Way With Larry Mendte

Delaware State Rep. John Kowalko appeared on “The Delaware Way” with host Larry Mendte last week to discuss parent opt out of the Smarter Balanced Assessment and  the veto override of House Bill 50 and the bill’s chances.  Citing the bill sits on the House Ready List, Kowalko blamed State Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, the Delaware Speaker of the House, for letting the bill just sit there.  Even Mendte said polling in the state suggests the people overwhelmingly want this bill.  Kowalko felt it wasn’t right for the Governor to usurp the will of the people and the General Assembly with his veto.

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. Just be careful. ESSA MANDATES that every state must tesr 95% of students and one way or the other they will meet that requirement. I believe the feds and their partners in crime LOVE the opt out movement because it will help them usher in what they REALLY want….Competency Based Education and assessments. These assessment test your child EVERY DAY ALL DAY!! And of course all done on the computer with the computer doing the teaching. Teachers become facilitators and parents are completely in the dark. CBE/CBA is OBE with a new name but just as deadly if not more so. So becareful what you ask for because they will pull every trick in the book to deceive you.
