Yes, you heard it right. The Delaware Academy of Yachting Charter School. This is a hot topic today at the State Board of Education Retreat down at Dewey Beach. Perhaps you never heard of this school before. But it exists. At least on paper (or pdf if you want to be technical). Did a charter school change their name? Is this a new charter school? I would have to assume this school is down in Sussex County if it is a yachting school. The Delaware DOE loves to abbreviate everything, so they call this the DAY School.
It looks like Happy Days are here again! The last time I did an article like this was a few weeks ago. I wrote Governor Markell submitted a video application to become Hillary Clinton’s (if elected President) U.S. Secretary of Education. It was a joke. It was the Governor’s weekly address. Many folks didn’t read the whole article. Let’s see if that happens again.
But the document talking about the DAY School does exist, as seen here. Sometimes you just have to lighten the mood a bit. The State Board is discussing the charter renewal process for this year’s charter renewals. To give an example for the presentation, the Charter School Office created this imaginary charter school. But someone will think this is the real deal. Don’t. It’s fake. And no, I don’t consider this a waste of taxpayer money.
