The Delaware Department of Education announced Delaware won $10.4 million dollars from a federal grant. What is the innovative use for this whopping amount of money? Absolutely nothing new. Everything that charter schools are supposed to be doing already based on Delaware state code. This is just U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s way of screwing traditional school districts by siphoning more money off to charter schools under “education improvement”.
Meanwhile, our Delaware Department of Education didn’t have enough oversight to do anything about Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security and watched them shut down a month into the school year. They could have taken off their “do-nothing see-nothing glasses” and gotten some strong meds for their scorching case of Pretendonitis and actually shut down the school earlier this year. But why do that when closing the school will actually disrupt students, families, and staff?
Does this grant money mean the DOE gets to keep some of this money? Haha! Of course it does. Maybe they can actually get a Charter School Office leader who can actually lead that office instead of covering stuff up for the charter schools!
