Charter fight is about accountability News Journal Letter to The Editor
In regards to the ACLU going against charter schools, yes an entrance exam, dress code, and a willingness to learn, (without disruption) are required for admission to a charter school, private school or Catholic school. Ask yourself, why did they start charter schools? Just look at the public schools.
When you have a union running your schools, what do you expect? Teachers do not answer to anyone. Seniority rules. They are not accountable for poor performance. This is not about anything else except, the teachers union is not in the private sector.
Hello Charter school are public schools! Well that’s until it’s time to be accountable to civil rights.
The Publius of the world feel teachers should be held accountable for student performance whereas the students parents don’t give a rat’s ass! But God forbid charter schools have open admission with “transparent lotteries”! God forbid if charter schools were required to record their board meetings! Publius would be the first to cry, “we’re a corporation”.

Because the fucking racist living in Red Clay’s affluent areas wanted segregated schools with just a sprinkle of black in the preferable charter schools and separated charter schools for at-risk blacks.
Charter schools are far from separate but equal! The time has come for state legislators to show courage and honor their oath to the constitution! And they can start by demanding the removal of the Delaware Secretary of Education and the impeachment of Governor Jack Markell. I ask, when will Delaware require their governor’s personal investments be held in blind trust!
In 2016 the education house of cards will fall and Governor Matt Denn will need to chose another path without “Rodel”! Yea Kilroy is calling 2016 for Denn! And yea Kilroy is pissed and feels Denn could have done more for H.B. 23! Hopefully State Representative Debbie Hudson picks up the H.B. 23 pieces and try again! If she is truly for open government she’ll get the job done. As far as charter schools, they need a taste of real openness to save them. We can’t allow charter schools to open and operate in the dark just to fail. Failure of one charter school is a failure for all charter schools.
I support charter schools as part of school choice and the choice must be accessible to all students on equal footing.
