THE ARCHITECT OF NORTHERN DELAWARE BUSING PASSES AWAY by The Colossus of Rhodey
Ironically, again, state lawmakers back then utilized (or, attempted to utilize) an early form of what the entire state now has as law — school choice — as the remedy for desegregation. But that wasn’t (and never is) sufficient for the social engineers among us. Read more here ……….

When will you listen? It is not about pay and never has been, this is why the incentive bonus program was rejected by far more than accepted it last year.

I just can’t see how the Delaware Department of Education has the capacity to effectively manage more charter schools. They are making a mess with Pencader probationary status and OMG have you visited all the charter school webpages? Many are a mess with many lacking links to critical school governance in formation such as updated financial reports, required IRS 990 forms posted on webpage, board minutes and agendas and budgets, Now we’re finding out charter schools don’t even have to provide summer schools and there are concerns some are charging summer school tuition.
Steve is going to love this, I honestly feel DE DOE needs to get out of the charter school approval business and only allow public school districts to approval charter schools within their bounds if they desire. This is a 360 reversal of my previous position. Also, all eyes are on Red Clay in regards to Delaware College Preparatory charter school now on Red Clay probation. It takes vision to approve charter schools and courage to close the ineffective ones. I just think DE DOE has lost it’s credibility as an approval and oversight charter authority.
I am not saying don’t approval more charter schools or end charter schools all together. I am saying, DE DOE is in over it’s heads and we need some kind charter school approval and oversight body that can do a better job.

Judge Murray Schwartz’s desegregation ruling and the havoc it wreakedby John A. Di Mondi News Journal Letters to The Editor January 18, 2013
There are few events in one’s life that affect so many as the 1978 desegregation order by the now late Judge Murray M. Schwartz. Uprooting tens of thousands of young children including my two children from their neighborhood schools to bus them into Wilmington, a hostile unsafe environment, at a time shortly after armed troops, I being one of them that had to occupy the city to preserve order.
Mr. Schwartz used his position like so many other social liberal activists to promote his private and others of his ilk’s positions. He is being lauded by others following in his tainted footsteps whom put their personal liberal agenda over a large segment of society’s own personal rights and aspirations. Yet his rulings went beyond the immediate chaos it caused. It created the continued demise of the public school system as we knew it into the failure it is today.
The white-flight repercussions spread into large abandonment of the public school system by any parent of any race who wants a safe and learning environment for their children. Thus the birth of charter schools and expansion of religious and private learning to escape Judge Schwartz and his followers’ grand experiment with our children’s future. It was hypocrisy by him and the Joe Bidens and others including our current president, who champion this cause, yet send their children to expensive private schools. It’s not the conservatives who exemplify this hypocrisy of “let them eat cake” but the social liberals like the late Judge Schwartz and company.
