The Delaware State Board of Education audio recording went up today. Yesterday’s meeting was very interesting between the WEIC presentation, SATs, the Delaware Met decision for formal review, and Dr. Steven Godowsky’s first meeting as Acting Secretary of Education. I had to leave after the Del Met decision and I still need to listen to the decision on the Teach For America sponsored Lead Delaware decision.
