DE Chief for Change “authors” an editorial and it’s full of ____________

Transparent Christina

I’ll let you fill in the blank after I take you on a short red pen journey:

When children at some of our schools are not learning, we have an obligation to act. Ok, but how do we define learning I wonder? Tests?

Three months ago, the State announced a commitment um, 6MM over 4 years to 6 schools? That’s a pittance, not a commitment. Shame on you and the governor for calling it one to improve educational opportunities for children in our state’s six lowest-performing schools this is a lie by their own measurements there are schools with lower test scores but these six happen to all be in the same “neighborhood”…I wonder why…. Our Priority Schools initiative has received heavy criticism as it deserves from those who fear maybe, but mostly fromthose that cannot stand to see you and the Governor grandstand for publicity…

    Maybe CSD and RCSD — and their respective “education associations’ — should do something which they can point to as “theirs” for the improvement of these schools. The absence of this is what has led to the intervention of State forces.

    All of this ad hominem bellyaching is certainly a teachable moment for the district, I’m just not sure it’s the lesson that should be taught. Stand up and be accountable. All will go much better when our community gets past the labeling and the protection of legacy structures and starts solving issues which are in proportion to the public interest and the public demand.

    You want to honestly sit there and talk to us about public demand? Want to know who suffers from the public demand? The kids. Family Foundations is just another tale of an animal house charter school who think children’s lives are little action figures and dolls they can do with as they please. If I’m reading into this right as well, we have massive financial fraud with this school. You know exactly what this intervention really is, so let’s stop playing the games. When the much ballyhooed charter movement crumbles and it ALL comes out, come back and talk to us about this public demand. The public school districts have been saying what they need and want for years. But the DOE and the charter gods have been walking around with their heads up their asses, allowing public funds to be tossed around like it’s a party at a go-go bar.

      You are possibly obsessed with Family Foundations, we get it. However, I thought this thread was about Murphy’s statement and Transparent Christina’s commentary on it.

    • Publius! How dare you! I never get obsessed. I just have focus. If you don’t see a connection with the DOE turning a blind eye to Family Foundation Animal House but wanting to slam Christina SD into the wall then you are either purposely avoiding that subject or enjoying an afternoon bottle. 😉

      Murphy is the chief, and under his watch, this charter was allowed to do whatever they wanted and TONS of children suffered. It’s all in writing, going to the executive director of the state board. But they get a pass? And the priority schools and Gateway are under the knife? I know there’s a soul in there. Please tell me you agree with me on the absolute hypocrisy going on here.

    • Publius, when it’s news about the charters, everyone is “obsessed”, but when it’s the public school districts, that’s news.
