I don’t know were all the sleepyheads were today but they missed a public forum between local school boards of New Castle County and charter school boards, principals and organizers. Kilroy and one other person from the community were among school board members, education leaders and one state representative.
The Q&A session went pretty good and was a first-step towards renewed dialogue between school districts and charter reformist. However, there still exist a layer of ice and mistrust.
I don’t want to get into a play by play of who said what. The sad part is the lack of interest by those who have some much to debated. It’s very unfortunate that Jack Markell didn’t show up because he would have seen the need for renewed discussion on charter schools and the law.You folks had a charter to real weigh in on the charter school debate and provide input to address the concerns.
The forum was open with no requirements to submit questions beforehand.
