I reached out to State Rep. Earl Jaques and his legislative aide today regarding the massive bomb Earl laid last night at the School District Consolidation Task Force meeting. The response was the polar opposite of what was said last night. Continue reading Earl Jaques And His Education Hunger Games Need To End
The Delaware House of Representatives just passed HS1 for House Bill #287 which would allow for a small portion of special education students who would otherwise be given a certificate of performance to be given a diploma with modified standards. The vote count was 34 yes, 4 no, 2 not voting, and one absent.
The representatives who voted no were Stephanie Bolden, Rich Collins, Deb Heffernan, and J.J. Johnson. Those who refused to vote were Gerald Brady and Charles Potter. Only one Republican voted no and the rest were Democrats.
The next stop for the bill will be the Senate Education Committee. If it is released from there, it would go up for a full Senate Vote. Should it pass in the Senate, it would go to Governor Carney for signature. Upon signature, it would go into effect for the 2018-2019 school year. A great day for this segment of our special education students!
