Update 12/10/2010 Dinner with Serpico
Looks like Delta Force at Moyer. One WPD SRO, two school security guards and a male teacher put down an incident that escalated after a student assaulted a teacher. Several student go involved and even a parent. Apparently in the defense of the student perpetrator. Appears charges were filed against the perpetrator, his crew and parent.
Dear Mr Maurice Moyer: Surely it was an honor having a school named after you. However, its obvious K12.com with the supervision of the Delaware Department of Education is out of their league. As you see I keep referring to Moyer Academy as Moyer K12.com Academy and it’s because I see them as two different entities. Prior to Governor Jack Markell closing the real Moyer Academy to prove to Arne Duncan he has balls to close a low perform school in order to secure Race to The Top funding, the real Moyer Academy was rated “Commendable”. Jack Markell order the real Moyer closed prior to students taking last year’s DSTP and that was to demoralize students to ensure they wouldn’t put their best foot forward on the DSTP. K12.com was brought in because Jack Markell did not put together a plan to assist the so-called failing students. His plan was to let them just go back to the public schools they came from in their feeder-pattern. So Jack Markell’s way of helping failing students was to send them back to failing schools. Moyer was a Race to The Top sacrificial black lamb. I find it so ironic that one of the reasons Moyer was closed was because some of the teachers were not high qualified as prescribed by Title 1. Yet the United State Secretary of Education holds no education credentials to qualify him. I feel Moyer Academy is ground zero for a real education civil rights movement. Also, I would recommend that Mr. Moyer ask that his name be removed from this school and let Jack Markell rename it Skipper Academy, Rodel Preparatory Academy or Sokola School for At-Risk Students.
One must question why the state would operate a charter school with a security force and official police presence when charter schools are to be the cure for the so-called traditional public schools. Moyer is failing because it lacks community identity and is operating via a privatization mold orchestrated by the business round-table network lead by a bunch of rich white guys.
From a Miracle to Mess ! D you go that right. D we need a voice and we need deliverance. Moyer needs a board of directors connected to the community reflective of the community.
However, there is no reason or excuse for civil unrest or attacks on members of the WPD or educators. If those who came to the perpetrator’s defense were so justified then they should have held civil protests. Kids should not enter schools as children and leave as criminals. The voice is stronger than the fist especially when that voice is organized. Jack Markell’s obsession for political status and recognition by Washington set the stage for the events taking place at Moyer K12.com in motion.
AS I SAID MOYER WAS RATED COMMENDABLE WHEN JACK MARKELL ORDERED IT CLOSED
