Shared Sacrifice. I’ve grown to loathe that horrible term the past few months. It is just as bad as “Human Capital” or “Smarter Balanced”. From what I’m hearing, the Delaware Joint Finance Committee voted today to get rid of Governor Carney’s horrible “match tax without a referendum” idea. The bad news: they cut the education sustainment fund $11 million dollars. Which means all those Reduction In Force notices that went out in May? Many may have to be enforced. Teachers are going to lose their jobs here folks. In districts where classrooms are already bloated.
For all of Governor Carney and the General Assembly’s talk about improving Delaware education, this is the WRONG way to go. Good job Carney and JFC! I hope you wrestle with those demons tonight.
