This is the FOIA file that keeps on going, and going, and going…
This one shows a document from October, 2013 showcasing what the DOE’s most important goals are, especially for the current academic year. Once again, we get confirmation that SATs and PSATs are being aligned to the Common Core Standards. This is happening at a national level as a state does not have the ability to dictate what appears on these tests. The College Board does all the legwork for these assessments.
I would have to guess at this point that Accountability 2.0 is the new accountability standards the DOE is trying to get in place for schools. This would involve legislation according to this memo, so look for something to be introduced in the General Assembly at any time. It will be interesting to see who sponsors this legislation at first, because that would mean they are probably in tight with the Delaware DOE.
Governor Markell, the biggest name in Delaware. We hear him all the time talking about education in our state. Why? What is his agenda? Is he in it for the children, or does he have other ulterior motives? To that end, I will let you decide.
I have compiled all my main articles concerning Governor Markell in what spot on this blog, and you can find them all here:
If you still think Markell is a great man after reading this, so be it. If you are very concerned about your child’s education after reading some of these articles, please educate yourself some more and read the article right below this one and take a stand!
