“CASTLE HAS WORKED TO BRING TEACH FOR AMERICA TO DELAWARE
Washington – “For the past several years, I have worked with Teach for America to bring their outstanding graduates to Delaware. Colleagues and I on the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee have seen this program make a difference in areas around the country, specifically in low-income communities, and for this reason I offered an amendment to the Higher Education Act, which increased its funding. Delawarean students can truly benefit from this teacher training program which works to engage professionals and college graduates, who may not have a traditional education degree, but have fulfilled teaching criteria in their area of expertise. The success of this program is heavily reliant on the support and mentoring from the teaching community to ensure kids remain our top priority.”
Mike so you’re taking credit for bringing Teach For America to Delaware? We do the taxpayers of Red Clay send an invoice for reimbursement of the $300,000.00 Red Clay is giving Teach for America to train these non-teachers? Mike when was the last time you visited a Red Clay School? I remember now, it was about ten years ago we chatted at a Title 1 event at Warner School. You know the place, a school half filled with 81.1% African-Americans and 84% high poverty. Mike think about this, the school is at half capacity and the district failed to meet the class size law.

So you are saying the U of D students trying to get jobs in Red Clay suck and you have to go out of state?
Holy shit Mike, did you know your “contact” person Stephanie is on Rodel’s Foundation board of directors? OMG you old Pete is on Rodel’s advisory council.
Well one thing for sure Mike it doesn’t take a Harvard graduate to see Red Clay local taxpayers are being taken for a $300,000.00 ride on a no bid contract handed to Teach for America. Mike we need long term commitments from teaching professionals. Friend I’ve been voting for you since 1974 and you are losing touch.
Mike, be prepared to help get out the vote for Red Clay’s next referendum because it’s going to be a battle.
