Breaking News: Delaware Secretary of Education Dr. Susan Bunting Is Out

A press release will go out today regarding the “resignation” of Delaware Secretary of Education Dr. Susan Bunting. Don’t be fooled. This is NOT a resignation from what I’m hearing from various sources. Apparently Delaware Governor John Carney does not like the direction of, wait for it, the Wilmington schools.

This is hot off the press so to speak. More will be forthcoming for sure!

No one saw this coming and Bunting was very upset about the news this morning according to sources who wish to remain anonymous. The question on everyone’s lips is “Who’s next?”

I am hearing a few names going around the water cooler but I have no doubt Governor Carney knows exactly who he wants.

Bunting oversaw the Delaware DOE during the past five years. The Covid-19 pandemic definitely challenged Delaware education and students and staff are still feeling the pressure from it all. She will most likely be remembered for the opportunity funding now available to Delaware schools.

Why now? Good question. Rumors circulated about Bunting possibly retiring at the end of Carney’s first term but that didn’t happen. It just seems very odd this would happen now. Unless Carney has something planned.

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!

  1. Kevin, this is Glenn Rolfe, news reporter for the Delaware Stat News. Would like to get up with you for more on your blog about the DOE’s news on Dr. Bunting today.


  2. Rumor from friends within the department is she is taking the fall for issues initiated on by Carney. The negative public image caused by the masks in school. The Wilmington schools issue (which really is more of the fault of the districts than DOE). Really low morale among the remaining employees due to burnout from working 12-18 hours days over the past 20 months of COVID. One person said there has never been so many vacant positions as there is now. People are leaving there quickly and they can’t get people to fill those vacancies.
