I’m sorry, I had to put that headline in. I can’t believe I am saying this, but thank you to Senator David Sokola and State Rep. Paul Baumbach for coming up with the most common sense legislation I have seen in years! As a father of a school-aged son, I have seen him struggle with what this legislation deals with. It is a very heavy load for students to bear this burden. But this bill recognizes this, and I do appreciate it. As a frequent grocery shopper, I used to struggle with bags either loaded up to the point I thought my arm would fall of or they put one thing in each bag. Neither is acceptable. But this bill does actually make a lot of sense. When you hear your student complaining about back pain, it could come from the dreaded backpack!
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
