The Delaware Charter School Leak: To Good To Be True?

Sometimes I see or hear about stuff that is going on in Delaware schools that is just to good to be true.  When I ran across this one, I thought it must be a joke.  According to what these students had to say about this charter school in Dover it looks like this secret pipe has been unclogged!  According to the complaint against the Head of School at this charter, it isn’t just bathroom issues either!  If their complaints are true, there are some very serious issues going on there.  I’m sure any teacher can tell you students abuse going to the bathroom, but to limit that to once a day?  That seems a little abusive if this complaint has merit.  But the school, according to the complaint, will give special consideration if you have a doctor’s note.

The part about meals and what the head of school allegedly said to kids is more worrisome if it is true.  I would really hope it is not!  I don’t think we will see a Delaware DOE Formal Review coming out of this, but I hope someone looks at this very troublesome but maybe it is not issue!

All School Boards Must Record: Governor Markell Signs HB61

On May 25th, Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed House Bill 61 into law. All public school boards in Delaware must record their board meetings when they are in public session and make them available on their website within seven business days of the meeting. The law goes into effect 90 days after signature, so by August 25th this is the law of the land!

This is a true victory for Kilroy’s Delaware, the godfather of education blogs in Delaware. For the very few who might not know, this has been Kilroy’s mission for the past fifty billion years or something like that. Many helped along the way, but he carried the flame. And with only a pocket full of college credits!

Kilroy promised his readers that after this mission was done he would release his long-awaited story about how “Johnny can’t read”.  I can’t wait to read it!  Congrats to the main man, the man who has inspired so many of us, who has been doing this much longer than I have, and keeps on going, the one, the only,

KILROY
