I’ve always wondered why the Delaware Department of Education has outside vendors do surveys and reports on teachers. It’s not like 95% of these companies aren’t already biased towards the DOE’s way of thinking anyways. The DOE will say it is so they don’t have a conflict of interest. What do those employees due at the DOE all day if outside vendors do everything? Here is the latest report from the University of Pennsylvania’s Operation Public Education based on a survey they did about teacher recruitment. Of course there are a gazillion recommendations coming out of this. Maybe they are good, maybe they are bad. I don’t know. I don’t work for a school district. I do know the DOE paid this consultant over $44,000 for the last report they did. How much coin will they get for this one?
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
