Atnre Alleyne, the Executive Director of DelawareCAN, sent out an email blast to Delaware educators today. The email was unsolicited and left Delaware teachers wondering how Alleyne even got their email address in the first place. This pattern of abuse on Alleyne’s part ends a week filled with his mischief. Continue reading
Kilroy, I know you’re speaking tonight at the Red Clay Consolidated School District Board meeting. I wish I could have been there to cheer you on, but I have my own quest at the Capital board meeting. I know you will say the things the DOE doesn’t want you to say, but you will do it anyways. That’s what makes you Kilroy, as well as awesome. You are the voice of Red Clay, as well as education in Delaware. Your voice does matter! We are all proud of you and everything you have written and exposed. You got me into this immensely crazy Delaware blogging world, and I thank you for that.
I’m sure anyone concerned with the priority schools will be reading Kilroy’s Delaware tonight. If you don’t read Kilroy’s, you really should. 9 out of 10 times Kilroy has the lowdown before the other bloggers in the state even get a sniff!
Welcome to the new Exceptional Delaware! I’ve been wanting to change things up for a while now, so here you have it. I liked the old design, but I was limited with what I could do with it. Special thanks to Kilroy for some advice on how to do some things!
The links are now at the top for easier access to parents. My subtitle has changed because this has become the heart of this blog. The problems in special education are mounting in this state, and across the country. What was once unique is becoming dismantled on a national scale. This is not a unique Delaware problem.
I’ve updated the blogs I follow into four sections: Delaware, Education, Disabilities, and Other Awesome Blogs.
Delaware will focus on happenings in education and government in these bizarre times. All the Delaware favorites are here, and there is a lot going on in the 1st State! From primaries, to education, and to a cultural change in the way many of us are thinking about what goes on here. People are getting fed up with the way things are run here, and more and more of us aren’t drinking the kool-aid!
Education will cover all things education reform as well as special education. If you want to find out the truths and hidden agendas behind Common Core, this is the place to go! Educators all over the country are finding out what really lies behind the lies and innuendos that are being sold to our schools. As well, links to special education will be included in this section. There are some great special education teachers out there, and some of them have created awesome blogs to show what they do best!
Disabilities is for different types of special needs and how families cope with children (or adults) who have them. To me, this is the true heart of special needs, and what happens at home and school can have a tremendous effect on the family. You will find posts that will shock you, and others that give you that extra bit of hope when you don’t think it exists.
Other Awesome Blogs are off the beaten path of this blog, but I still like them and they are worth checking out! I will be adding more to this section as time goes on.
I hope you like the new look and it is more user-friendly for you! The best (or worst depending on your perspective) is yet to come…
