The Delaware State Board of Education is meeting right now in their Spring Retreat. In the agenda (seen below), it appears they are prepping for several items, one of which I didn’t know about since it appears it was snuck into the epilogue of the FY2015 budget.
Part of me wanted to go to this meeting, but then I realized I would just hear the same bad lingo I always hear from this board. Although I would have loved to hear them discuss their little Joint Sunset Review! Their ESSA overview is filled with the same corporate education reform language from companies like The Alliance for Excellent Education or whatever the heck their name is. I can’t keep track of them all anymore.
What gets me is this Special Education Strategic Plan. Why is everything called a “Strategic Plan” these days? It’s just more buzz words that sound important but allows more of the same “college and career readiness” crap into our schools. The axis for everything in education now is the standardized test. Just opt out…
