Greg Meece runs Newark Charter School. For 18 years, Newark Charter School is rated not only one of the top charter schools in Delaware but one of the top schools. There is a multitude of reasons for this but it boils down to diversity. At their public hearing for their charter renewal process, Meece made a comment that is sure to rile up the diversity crowd all over again. Meece openly lied about his own school.

The DOE Financial Transparency Gambit Brings Out Tons Of Public CommentEducation Funding
Last month, the Delaware Department of Education held a series of Community Conversations surrounding the mandates of Senate Bill #172. The legislation requires the DOE to come up with a uniform method of allowing the public to compare finances between schools. It is a cumbersome and large task. It is also required by the Every Student Succeeds Act. The DOE solicited public comment and boy did they get it!
I still go with the “every penny” scenario. As in, I won’t be satisfied until we can see how every penny in public education is spent. I’m pretty sure the folks at Rodel and DelawareCAN already have their claws into this and will make sure whatever comes out fits their own agendas.
