The Delaware State Board of Education renewed the charter of Family Foundations Academy at their board meeting on March 19th. The school is under a probation clause for six months, and they must give paperwork to the Charter School Office at the Delaware Department of Education each month for half a year. EastSide Charter essentially took over the school after Sean Moore and Dr. Tennell Brewington were terminated for stealing over $90,000 from one of the school’s accounts earlier this year.
Meanwhile, the famous education blogger Diane Ravitch picked up on the original story about Moore and Brewington yesterday. Delaware doesn’t come up often on her blog, but she covers education on a national level. Her blog gets 25,000 to 100,000 readers on a daily basis, so a lot of people read about FFA yesterday! She did refer to Moore and Brewington as co-founders, but Moore came on the scene later.
