The Interim Secretary of Education, Dr. Steven Godowsky, must be the most popular man in Delawarer these days. I’ve heard of numerous requests for people to meet with him only to be declined or put off with little or no response. On Thursday morning, the New Castle County School Boards is having their quarterly breakfast. Dr. Godowsky will be there, but apparently DOE wants to know what questions board members will have for him. Seriously? Come on Dr. Godowsky, don’t be the DOE and Markell’s puppet! Be your own man! This is your chance to shine. Don’t look it this as a filler role, look at it as the chance to make the change that is needed in education for Delaware. Don’t let Jack boss you around like a puppy on a leash.
While I won’t tell you which district this is coming from, it did come from their administration. I have a question for Dr. Godowsky: If you could fire five people at DOE, who would they be? In terms of the way the DOE is “protecting you”, should we expect to see the same plastic bubble material around you like the Pope Mobile at the State Board of Education meeting on Thursday?
Please keep in mind, this is the invitation that went out to several different people, not commoners like you and I. But you can see Dr. Steve later that day at the State Board of Education meeting.
