Despite what I reported last evening, the Senate Executive Committee is BACK ON TODAY at 3:30pm. The meeting was canceled but now it is taking place again. I don’t understand what all the confusion was. The Senate Executive Committee will discuss Wali Rushdan’s nomination for the State Board of Education. If it clears the committee, it will most likely go before the full Delaware Senate for a vote shortly after.
The Senate Executive Committee canceled their meeting tomorrow. The only item on the agenda dealt with Governor John Carney’s nomination of Wali Rushdan for the State Board of Education. The Executive Committee must clear any nominations before the Delaware Senate can vote as a body for that nomination. No reasons were provided for the cancellation of the meeting.

Wali Rushdan and Sean Moore. Friends. Members of the same fraternity. Moore, the former Head of School at Family Foundations Academy, convicted of theft and fraud. Rushdan, a former member of the board at FFA, now nominated for a seat on the State Board of Education. Moore, in prison. Rushdan, an attorney at Fox Rothschild. Moore and Rushdan. What did Rushdan know about the situation at FFA? Why has he erased his term on their board from his biography at Fox Rothschild? Why was his bio redone the SAME day he got the nod from Governor Carney for the board seat with the State Board? Did Governor Carney bother to check this matter out and ask the appropriate questions? Who brought forth this nomination to Governor Carney? Questions that need to be answered. Questions our Delaware Senate need to ask right away.
A new name came forth recently in Delaware education. I must admit I had never heard of him before. Or had I? But who is he and how could he become a voice in Delaware education? Continue reading “Wali Rushdan: How He Could Impact Delaware Education & His Ties To A Charter School Fiasco”
