Senator Sokola. You need to get a Governor to try to win an election. The Negan and Lucille of public education. I would quote their silly little letter to the News Journal, but it is all rubbish. Nothing you haven’t heard before. It appears desperation breeds laziness in these two. When they can’t come up with anything new, they resort to the same old every single time. It is a broken record trying to be heard when the record player stopped working years ago. Yawn…
God help us if David Sokola is re-elected. Which means Meredith Chapman has to win! We don’t need Governor Markell’s right-hand man destroying public education for another term. Markell wouldn’t have been able to get 3/4 of his initiatives through without his Lucille.
This is the second time in the past two months we have been subjected to Sokolaness in the opinion section of the News Journal. The last time was Sokola taking credit for the Council of State Legislatures big report on public education. As if education would just stop working unless David Sokola wasn’t involved. You have seen the videos. DSEA did not endorse him. But he is fine with endorsing a bogus lawsuit against Christina School District. John Carney has the Sokola blinders on. He screws over teachers every chance he gets. He helped Newark Charter School get away with financial invisibility. He serves on the Joint Finance Committee with this fellow Newark Charter School cheerleader. He keeps his knife sharp so when he betrays his peers in the General Assembly it has the sharpest cut. He brought the DSTP and Smarter Balanced Assessment into our schools. He does not support parental rights. He has a very bizarre partnership with the 2016 Genghis Khan of teacher evaluations. When he lost his political prowess last Spring, the Governor had to issue an Executive Order to do the job Sokola couldn’t do. He rips on blogs while providing the ammunition they hurl at him. He chickened out on a vote to put the State Board of Education under Sunset Review.
Sadly, Delaware being what it is, his fellow Democrats are forced to support him. As the Lucille to Jack Markell’s Negan, Sokola smashes Delaware public education constantly. And then Jack takes all the credit.
