No Funding for Newly Proposed Administration Initiatives – The bill does not include the creation of a new account to fund preschool grants, and eliminates the President’s controversial Race to the Top initiative
I urge Delaware state legislators to order a complete top to bottom of the Delaware Department of Education. All positions originally funded by federal “grant” Race to The Top will expired after the end of the current school year. Delaware did get the extension to use carryover unused RTTT funding and that ended last. An audit will reveal $$ manipulation to create the carryover funds rather than apply it during the designated grant years. All DE DOE positions created by RTTT must be terminated June 30, 2015. And I am not talking about assigning those employees to other positions.
Delaware state legislators must take action to reverse any state legislation or regulations associated associated with Race to The Top goals. The federal government is walking away from Race to The Top and Delaware must do the same. Race to The Top failed! DE DOE is failing and the Delaware taxpayers shouldn’t fund a bloated DE DOE. We need teachers in classrooms not deadbeats at DE DOE living off the taxpayers.
