Something for Delaware State Representative Debbie Hudson re: Charter school transparency @arneduncan @washingtonpost #edude #netde @dedeptofed @destateboarded @usedgov @EducationOIG @huffingtonpost #neatoday @NSBAComm @NatlGovsAssoc

READ IT DEBBIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read  it Rep Longhurst !  Read Speaker of The House ! Read it Senator Lavelle ! The lack of real transparency for all charter schools impacts good and bad!  Keep an eye open in the coming days for a major embarrassment for Markell and his DE DOE flying monkeys! 

Hello all

I am a parent of FFA. I have to say I am in such dismay of the unprofessional conduct of the board members. They are supposed to be governing the school why are they not governing their conduct and being transparent and unbiased?

This info is via DE DOE Charter Review notes / public comments.

  1. Holy crap Kilroy! Good find. Not only does this board have a disciplinary action in an open meeting, but it’s a 5 year old who has disabilities and has the advocate there. First off, any disciplinary action for a child with special education services or even a suspicion should be handled through the special education dept. I’m guessing if the child has an advocate, something was most likely requested already. It’s December, and the kid is 5. What in the world could the kid have done in 3 months that would warrant a disciplinary action in front of the entire board?

    And this is obviously just one small part of the problems going on there. Hey Publius, no need for recorded board meetings? This is proof of why YOU would feel that way!

  2. Reblogged this on Exceptional Delaware and commented:
    Charter schools are the best. They can do no wrong. They are the solution to what ails our schools. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid Delaware parents. It’s always a great place until the veil is lifted, then it ALL comes out.

  3. It’s not a binary solution. There are great charter schools. And there are lousy charter schools.

    • No, what really exists are so-called “great charter schools” with “great kids” who have “minimal issues”. These schools usually perform well in state and/or national tests and get “greatness” thrust on them. By issues, I mean students who are low income, have learning disabilities, uninvolved parents and poor societal and communication skills.
      Then there are “lousy charter schools” with poor administration and/or “lousy kids” with “huge issues”.

      PS The traditional high schools have been dealing with “lousy kids” and get knocked when they don’t perform well.

      and the same exact thing exists in traditional schools, no? Think about the difference between CSD and Appo.

    • PM, Do you ever think critically or research anything before you write? CSD in 2013-14 has 43.6% low income vs Appo’s 14.9%. BTW, these numbers were after the state recalibrated low income. in 2012-13 it was 67.0 vs 27.4%.
      Try again!

  4. This is the shining example of Charter School government, or lack thereof. This is the exact type of complete all-out control being demanded by Penny Schwinn for the priority schools. … A leader who has no accountability to anyone. Mr. Moore is her ideal leader for Warner, Stubbs, Bancroft, Bayard, and Hillside.
