The Superintendent of the Smyrna School District, Deborah Wicks, is retiring at the end of June. As one of Delaware’s largest growing school districts, Wicks has Smyrna through a very huge growth spurt. Nineteen years is a long time as the leader of anything. I want to wish Mrs. Wicks all the best in her life after Smyrna. This district is one I really haven’t written much about over the past few years which is probably a good thing! Now the hunt will be on for her replacement.
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
