Yea me an my rants about a fragmented voice and a divided education system in Wilmington Delaware!
The time has come to reduce the four traditional school districts in Wilmington Delaware to two for starters. Also, it’s time to cool the jets on new charter schools in Wilmington.
As far as that fragmented voice, it’s time for the good brothers and sisters of Wilmington Delaware to wake up! Allowing rich white million-billionaire men to dictate what is best for minority children is nothing more than being enablers in the slave trade.
The education needs of Wilmington’s children must come from within the community by “unified” community leaders focused on the mission of true civil rights no for the love of greenbacks.
Red Clay refuses to offer traditional middle and high schools services to Wilmington’s children opting out for force busing to the suburban schools. Honestly, Red Clay isn’t worthy of of serving the needs of Wilmington’s children. Their refusal to do so based on concerns of re-segregating city schools has not merit when their current feeder pattern for elementary schools has already re-segregated Red Clay Wilmington’s schools.
So Paul, it “is” time to act for Wilmington schools but not by expanding charter schools unless those charter schools following the exact same admission requirements as “real” public schools. The time is now to address these concerns! But it’s wishful thinking when we have a governor who is owned by those selling corporate takeover of our schools.
Wilmington’s righteous self-proclaim civil rights leaders need to stop being dream-chasers and better become dream-catchers.
