    You are a pompous ass. You and the soulless “500 SOBs behind you” helped to create exactly what is going on with these schools. With your damn corporate games. Who the hell do you think you are? Do you think because you have money and you are some big player in the charter world you can dictate what fits in the almighty Publius world and what doesn’t? I know you just can’t help yourself, but you are proving more and more every day why you are nothing but a coward hiding behind a fake name. Be a man and show the world who you really are. Can’t do that though, can you? Got a rep to live up to. It’s people like you that make the rest of us fight like hell to protect what is being taken by you monsters.

  3. Kevin,
    Bravo to you and your concise and honest assessment of a truly meaningless personality, afraid to take ownership of his own failings.

    Anonymity, the perfect refuge for the cowardly to offer their criticisms of all those identifiable around them with no moral inhibitions such as honesty and fairness guiding them. Accountable to no one and never risking exposure to their own self-absorbed reality and existence. Merry Christmas to all the corporatist agenda driven frauds who move so easily in the murky shadows of anonymous blog posts rather then risk exposure of their personal stake and interests in the real world.

    • And I’m not saying that to defend Publius or anything. I just think it’s kind of funny in the blog word how being anonymous is a big taboo with some people, but only when the anonymous disagrees with the person who takes issue with it.

      No, Pubie fangirl, it is the cowardly anonys who take cheap potshots, toss ad hominems and hide behind a pseudonym to promote their real-world jobs, power, influence and agendas.

      WordPress uses my blogger name and real name interchangeably. Are you so seriously intellectually indifferent that you never checked the DE Way blog? You’ll find my name, my email and twitter account in plain view.

      Maybe Pencadercom is “seriously intellectually indifferent” to nanny-state delawareway. Maybe. Maybe not. But maybe. OK, probably. I can identify with that view.

      Pencadermom’s specific interest probably runs in a different direction. It is just a guess, based on her acerbic stiletto-like cuts on the content of certain blog-comments. She and I don’t always agree, but she is her own person and I always enjoy and respect her posts.

      Year-end is approaching. I’ll ask all of the no-accountability-for-results blog commenters here to think through what they want from public education. If you seriously want to have higher taxes and lower result-based accountability, then say so. It will make it easier for the rest of us to decide what to read and what to ignore.

      Oh — and please don’t confuse this with high needs commnities. We can all easily agree with high-needs situations. The question is whether or not schools and school taxes (as opposed to county, sales, state, federal tasxes — or community support volunteer organizations) ought to be the focal point of non-school needs.

      Each kid individually needs something from the public schooling system. Kids from tiger-mom-uber-achievement homes need something. Kids from muderously-tragic homes need something. Kids from union-parent homes need something. Kids from professional middle-management homes need something. So PLEASE stop trying to fit everyone into one model or a highest/lowest common demoninator solution. We need DIFFERENTIATED solutions withing the SYSTEM F SCHOOLS.

      . Give the “priority schools” more resources to appropriate manage their school days and the unique challenges they encounter
      . Decide if the schools tax is the appropriate mechanism to adjudicate social inequities and safety-net, or whether another and more broadly based method is appropriate.
      . Give the choice/magnet/charter schools the respect they deserve for providing apprioriate education which meets public demand within the constraints of limited public dollars
      . Give the feeder schools the respect they deserve for serving choice AND feeder AND disaffected students.
      . Give respect to the boards who in word and action respect all of these alternatives
      . and, yes, give heck to the boards and blog-commmenters who do not.

      Happy New Year

      Publius you do realize Uncle Pete and little Re-Pete are sowing seeds for school vouchers and Hudson is the point person!

      Just as NCLB wasn’t reauthorized to set the stage for NCLB waivers the means to lay foundation for privatization of public education, the failure of Priority Schools will be the means to push school vouchers. Markell is a slick poker-player and knows his house of cards will fall on the heels of his departure. The original charter founders are sitting fat re: their share of the pie! Unibrow is a master and he and the crawfish hunter taught me well. Just as someday textbooks will be the thing of the past, charter schools will be just a stepping stone for school vouchers. I’ve seen the plans where those students taking advantage of school vouchers will be required to take the smarter balanced test in common location(s). Private schools will be rated and excluded from the voucher program if too many students don’t me state standards. Would we be seeing charter schools converting to private schools if a voucher systems was in place? I was told during lunch at the WCC in the Grille Room your renege behavior isn’t welcome! The consolidation at the main house will trickle down to the pilot fish in the consultant pools.

      I will accept your claim at face value, that you are connected and you are a denizen of the Plaid Pants Club and I am a lowly out of touch blog commenter. Long live the voucher. Hail to The Chief. Happy New Year.

  4. So you include Kilroy, Kavips, Pandora, Delawareway, and others in your description of blog anonymity, correct?

  5. Nancy Willing proudly takes ownership of her blog and Kilroy doesn’t hide his identity and the others you mention own their blogs and their blogs opinion while the anonymous commenters Kevin and myself refer to have offered little other than feverishly contrived nastiness that they refuse to publicly own because their personal circumstances dictate their agenda and their afraid that some of their self-aggrandizing motives might be exposed. Reasonable associates and colleagues of theirs may not see the value of inexcusable nastiness as beneficial and even feel that it could diminish their position by association. You completely misread every criticism I’ve leveled at the “anonymous cowards” who travel this and other sites. I don’t criticize disagreement but will challenge name calling and denigration of groups that support a legitimate value or purpose. If you can’t or refuse to differentiate those anonymous writers than that’s on you.

    I’m glad to have brought such Christmas vim and vigor to this cozy group. Apparently being celebrated in coal country. May all of your wishes come true — in 2115.

    While each of you in your own way believes you have your boot on my throat, try to think about (while stomping and twisting) whether you are modeling the educational virtues you believe that you believe. I believe you are not. Have a nice holiday.

    Peace … and Freedom of School Choice.

    • See, this is where you always get yourself in trouble over here Publius. How can you sit there and promote freedom of school choice when it clearly isn’t? This is why everyone comes after you on here. There are two sides: those who know the lie, and those who promote it. Going beyond educational virtues, there are also life virtues. Go walk inside any of the priority schools, and tell me you don’t see how choice has impacted these students and these schools. It’s only choice if all are given equal standing with those choices. Anything other than that is pure hypocrisy.

  7. Warning, Warning, Bitter, desperate man posting above. He claims he can read minds and is sure to expose everyone’s failure to recognize or understand public education that doesn’t correspond with his “virtues”. “Freedom of School Choice” = “Priority Schools” = “Public/Taxpayer funded private schools” = “Admissions Exclusion” NOT!

    • Haven’t been on this site in quite a while because I don’t see it as having any value other than fomenting anti-charter rhetoric. That serves no benefit to the education that kids receive in all the schools in this state.
      I checked in the hopes that things changed. Sad to see it has not. Typical liberal mantra – all voices should be heard unless you disagree with me. Then, we’ll make personal attacks. This should be beneath the dignity of the office that Kowalko serves. It’s easy for him to rant and rave because Newark’s City Council does all the real work for his constituents. His only influence is his contribution to climate change with all the hot air he releases.

      Pub, I don’t know what you did to upset all the Charter haters on here but keep it up… when we rail against their idiotic comments they sit back and laugh and claim they must be doing something right. Sounds like you hit a nerve and upset the monkeys. Let them chirp away!!
