To all parents of Delaware public school children: Those legislators voting yes “Y” for this legislation support federal intervention of our local public schools. DCAS was a state standardized “growth model” test whereas The Smarter Balanced Assessment is a nationalized standardize test an end of year test against the Common Core Standards another intrusive federal intervention. Parents this bad news for you and your child!

I am particularly disappointed Rep. Joe Miro and Rep Ramone! As far as Rep Hudson and Rep. Longhurst, there is a grassroots movement to vote these two out of office November 2014. Looks like a few others are about to join this movement!

Folks this is a real sad day for Delaware! 

DE GOP pissing it the Wind with AG candidate! Denn still a shoe-in!

Republican lawyer to enter AG race Jonathan Starkey, The News Journal

Republicans have found a candidate for attorney general. Ted Kittila, a Wilmington corporate lawyer, said Tuesday he will challenge Lt. Gov. Matt Denn this November to fill the vacancy created by outgoing Attorney General Beau Biden.

Enough the I might be pissed at Lt Gov. Matt Denn for not providing support for H.B.#23 I have to conceded from  a political perspective. Denn is a shoe-in for Delaware’s next Attorney General. Denn has the nice guy factor which sells in Delaware. Also, Governor Markell took care of the only person who could beat Denn, Ferris Wharton by appointing Wharton a Superior Court Judge. This is how it works in Delaware!
