Looming Questions

Good morning readers. I hope you are having a great day. As I reside in a new state I still have lots of questions about good old Delaware. I haven’t done this in a while but they are urgent questions that need answers.

Why would a school board hire a Superintendent’s daughter as a student teacher and allow her to get a $20,000 sign-on bonus because they come from University of Delaware? Why don’t the other Delaware universities and colleges get this same sign-on bonus?

Will the Delaware General Assembly convene soon to begin impeachment proceedings against Kathy McGuiness? Will a brave soul in the House or Senate draft legislation dealing with an elected official’s duties if they are accused of a crime, be it a misdemeanor or felony?

How soon will the Delaware Senate meet to confirm Dr. Mark Holodick as the next Delaware Secretary of Education?

Why does Brandywine School District appear to be the “most favored” district in the state? The Delaware teacher of the year is from Brandywine. Dr. Holodick is from Brandywine. Doesn’t a certain Governor live in the Brandywine School District? *Updated: Last year’s teacher of the year was in Red Clay, not Brandywine. Although she did get a seat on the Brandywine School Board last Spring.

There seems to be an uptick in school violence across the state. But are districts faithfully reporting this to the Department of Education? Is the DOE faithfully reporting those numbers?

When will Senator Darius Brown get his comeuppance? Punching a woman in the face and being allowed to still serve as an elected official is JUST as egregious as allowing Kathy McGuiness to still perform her duties. And for that matter, what about State Rep. Gerald Brady?

A Delaware Senator will soon announce they won’t be seeking re-election in 2022. Which one?

Will Dr. Holodick clean house at DOE or will he leave folks in place?

If Delaware students are expected to follow mask mandates why was there no mask mandate at the teacher of the year ceremony at Dover High School? And why no social distancing guidelines in place?

Since Kathy McGuiness had obvious ties to the AHEPA organization which has heavy ties to Odyssey Charter School does this mean Kathy Jenning’s office will take a heavy look at the Odyssey report from the Auditor’s office as a part of McGuiness’ investigation?

Why has Delaware Speaker of the House Pete Schwartzkopf been silent on the McGuiness situation? Will he lead or feel bad for his friend? For that matter why has Governor Carney been quiet about it? Instead of showing fist-bump pictures on his Facebook account why can’t he comment on the biggest news out of Delaware in a long time?

Feel free to put your own questions in the comments section!

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. Yes, she was asked to but there was a lot of drama between office and the Department of Education. A report came out but it was not a full-scale investigation that it should have been. It was very weak.
