Christina’s Super Williams asked Delaware legislators to intervene in DE Sec of ED Murphy’s madness

(E-mail sent to all state legislators within the bounds of Christina School District)

March 25, 2014

Dear Christina Legislators:

Please find attached a letter to Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy, signed by the superintendents of Delaware’s 19 school districts. The letter requests that the state Department of Education postpone utilizing the Academic Framework as a measure of progress in the ESEA amendment and instead continue with the current AYP measures for one more year. The superintendents unanimously assert that waiting one year will give all educators and stakeholders an opportunity to build an understanding of the proposed Academic Framework so that all stakeholders are aware of how student and school progress is measured and are fully included in the discussion.

I thank you for your continued interest in and support of our students and schools. Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.

Freeman L. Williams, Ed.D.
Superintendent, Christina School District

Folks if you don’t know what’s going on here, it’s about increasing federal intrusion in our local schools. Dr. Williams and apparently other state school supers want the breaks to be applied to Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy’s going it alone changes in school ratings under ESEA. They want “the opportunity to build on the understanding of the proposed academic framework.” Scary at best! You think, the supers would already have an understanding before such action is taken by Sec of Ed Mark Murphy.  

Though Dr. Williams wasn’t the superintendent of Christina at the time of signing the Race to The Top MOU, I must say to those supers who were, you got in over your head.

Folks, our state legislators need to step-up and demand the removal of Delaware Secretary of Education. His bias to political agenda between Governor Markell and Washington D.C. is not in the best interest of Delaware’s school children. 

Markell and Murphy talk about all this collaboration between stakeholders and the letter signed by all the state district superintendents strongly suggest otherwise. However, when asked to bend-over beforing signing the Race to The Top Mou they should of said, how far! How does the ass feel to day super’s!

    This just keeps getting better and better. The supers must have had some looooooong talks to have come to the conclusion the legislators must be brought in (which they NEVER want to happen) so as to actually press this case. Murphy must have really told them where to stick it when they made their case informally and out of Kilroy’s line of sight.

  3. See the preview for 10NBC news? “Philly teachers attacked by students. According to the teachers, it happens all the time.” Wonder what they are going to do about it. Oh well, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the little dickens rights to an “education”.

      The kids in question prolly didn’t start school till they were 5 or 6. Just another reason to turn them over to the capital S State at 12 months.

      What? 4:00, watching the tube? Having a Chardonnay and fiddling with your nails after a hard day of momming?

      Actually I work from home half the week but took today day off to visit my dad in New Jersey.. I don’t need wine, but after listening to me babble all day, he’s probably starting his vodka w/ lime juice happy hour a bit early 😀

    It just dawned on me; Williams should send a dumbed down version of this home tonight in every lunchbox, bookbag and holster, with a plea to “dial the following number and demand thus and so of so and so legislator.” Maybe, just maybe, a few of the parents could hear him above the lullaby in the background.
