I want to apologize to my readers. For the past two and a half years, I have given a near daily stream of education news in Delaware. The past few days, if you read my article about what has been going on with my son or follow me on Facebook, have demanded I take a backseat to my usual education news. It won’t be permanent. I had a post already set to go which I put out on Saturday about DOE ESSA surveys. On top of a very hectic work weekend, I’ve been dealing with the fallout of facing yet another education institution that would rather discriminate than accommodate. But it has hit my son very hard. He is not okay with this. He is my first priority, always. So if you send me tips and I am unable to reply, please understand it is not intentional and I will catch up with it all. Thank you all, and thank you for all the messages wishing my son and my family well. Your support means more than you will ever know. Family first, always!
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
