Obligations

There were two “education” events I wanted to get to this week, but I can’t.  There are more important things I have to take care of.

Today, I was all set to go to the first Charter School Accountability Committee meeting for Delaware Academy of Public Safety & Security’s formal review.  An hour or so before the meeting, I got a call from a friend who needed someone to talk to.  I didn’t mind missing the meeting.  It’s not like the CSAC report won’t be up in the next week or so.  I can read it in five minutes instead of sitting there for two hours listening to it and getting weird looks from folks.  But my friend needed me and that friend has been there for me in the past.

Tomorrow is the Regulation 225 meeting at Del-Tech.  There will literally be hundreds, if not thousands, of people there.  Me, I’ll be off to Dover High School to help my son pick electives for next year.  Let’s see: free dinner from the fine folks at Dover H.S. and see what interests my son or deal with tons of people complaining about a transgender regulation and how unfair it is not all of them will be able to give public comment?  I’ll go with the former thank you very much!  And when I get home, I’ll watch The X-Files.

This is the life of an education blogger.  I can’t be everywhere and sometimes I don’t want to.  I’m pretty sure folks will keep me in the loop on both of these events.

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!
