Yep we’re at the 5000th blog post since starting in 2006 at Blogspot as Kilroy Was Here and called it quits December 2007. I made a quick bounce back as The Revenge of Kilroy moving to WordPress then settling in as Kilroy’s Delaware May 2008. I trashed and burned Kilory’s at Blogspot and Revenge of Kilroy and refocused.
This is what Jason said at the 2007 Kilroy funeral
This is timeless no matter what happens:
Parents who have children in school, please get involved with your school and child’s education. Even quality teachers can only do so much with limited resources. Don’t send your child to school thinking it the teacher’s job to educate them. It’s your job to be the teacher’s partner and work with your child at home to reinforce the days lesson. You are your child’s first teacher.
I would add that it is also your job to be the teacher’s partner regarding discipline. And d don’t let the only time you show up at school be when your kid gets suspended and don’t be there to claim that your child is innocent.

In the meantime: Kilroy needs to stay here. If you believe in what John was doing, step up to the damn plate and become a Kilroy (or a Kil-rette). The reason that “Kilroy” became the graffiti of choice in the World War II is that Kilroy was everywhere. Kilroy couldn’t be killed or silenced because Kilroy was potentially EVERYONE.
Jason Delaware Liberal, Mike Matthews Down With Absolutes and Dana Garrett at Delaware Watch really inspired me to become a blogger. Matthews trashed and burned his blog because he had to join the real world! Jason stayed put as he was the real world and Dana still lurks among us but not as a blogger! Dana is amazing and I knew him and work with him when he was a grad student. It was a trip watching him match wits with juvenile delinquents at a treatment center we both worked at.
It does get tough with my limited writing skills but I make no bones that I have a GED and a pocketful of college credits. I was served by Title 1 back in 1964-65. I served on may committees local and state and yep a school PTA president (go figure Publius) However, it was never about me but about voice. I feel no matter what station you hold in life you have a voice and it should be equal. The poorest of poor parent should have equal voice.
One thing that I find amazing is, with all the PhD’s calling the shots in education, I can only wonder why things are so fucked up!
Honestly, I hate blogging! I have a much bigger and better story to tell. However, perseverance prevails and I will finish this mission!
The verbal obscenities you may see here is nothing compared the the obscenities of the system and politicians like Jack Markell. My words may be obscene but people like Jack’s agenda are far more obscene and damaging.
