Visit Children and Educators First Sec. Murphy’s statement to the NJ regarding Pencader
There’s a lot of conjecture out there right now about what will happen to Pencader. I’ve had a renewed run on the telephone with parents asking if our school will be closed. To that end, rather than conjecture, I asked the PIO at DOE if I could have a copy of the statement sent by Sec. Murphy to the News Journal. She quickly supplied it. Read more at Children and Educators First …………
Kilroy says, this part of Sec. Murphy’s comments;
Building-level financial oversight concerns; For several months state officials have attempted to work with the school, giving its board ample opportunity to improve voluntarily. The board has demonstrated limited capacity to govern the school. Students, families and staff deserve better.
So why did the Delaware Department of education officials in charge of Delaware’s charter schools tell the Delaware State Board of Education there were no red flags in regards to Pencader finances? I think the taxpayers deserve better and sure we can question the integrity of Pencader’s leaders but we must do the same with DE DOE’s charter school unit. HOWEVER, it is clear the Pencader board of directors aka school board lacks the capacity for understanding school finances and lack the respect of the laws that governs public school finances.
For everyday these issues aren’t addressed and corrected, Pencader crosses a point of no return and closure is warranted. The authority between Pencader school leaders and that of the school board is blurred at best. Who is working for who? I think board member Abe Jones finally gets it! All eyes are on Pencader’s special board meeting on September 10, 2012. Will the board give the school leader her walking papers? The legal expenses Pencader is taking on will no doubt exceed the schools budget for legal expenses to cover this mess. Monies will be taken away from student services or perhaps cost jobs within Pencader.
It’s kind of sad that here we have a school where teachers are teaching and students are learning. Yet those who governs Pencader are failing! Who pays the price? Children!
I think this Pencader issue will be a defining monument for Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy. Now wouldn’t it be amazing that Sec. Mark Murphy shows up at Pencader’s board meeting????
Signed in duplicate in Baghdad on this 17th day of November, 2008, in the English and Arabic languages, each text being equally authentic.
On November 17, 2008, the Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshiyar Zebari and U.S. ambassador Ryan Crocker signed the agreement in an official ceremony. Ratification by Iraqi Parliament
On November 27, 2008, the Iraqi Parliament ratified a Status of Forces Agreement with the United States, establishing that U.S. combat forces will withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and all U.S. forces will be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011
WHEN DID OBAMA TAKE THE OATH OF OFFICE ?????????? The agreement was hammered out well before the signing data. Bush opposed the terms and dates to full withdraw but the “Iraqis” insisted on terms of withdraw.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR News Journal September 04, 2012
Residents of 19th State House District should get to know Dennis Cini. I am a young voter who, like many of us, became disillusioned with politics. The same people can only bring about the same results, which is why I am supporting Dennis.
He is a practical, hard-working, and genuine person. More importantly, he has detailed plans that he is bringing to Dover to improve public education in Delaware. I graduated from the Red Clay School District, and know that Dennis understands the changes that need to be made. Results speak for themselves and our school district has been declining in quality since I was enrolled.
We need to elect someone who will serve us for real reasons and not personal gain. As a young person, I worry about the future and who is elected. If you share these same concerns I urge you to speak with Dennis Cini
