Kilroy fast-forward 2015:
Just for the record Jenny doesn’t know the inside history of what went down and What does Markell and K12.Inc have in commonPosted on January 19, 2011 by kilroysdelaware. In comes down to this, Markell got a bug up his ass because “apparently” Theo was going to be Markell’s little Wilmington puppet. The problem Moyer was having were noting compared to the bullshit near corruption going-on in some charter schools. If anything, Moyer needed “technical assistance” and real support from DE DOE. Theo / Moyer unlike Charter School of Wilmington opened it’s door to the most intense at-risk inner city kids. Theo understands “tough love” when it comes to dealing with many troubled kids. No doubt there was direct Markell involvement taking Moyer / Theo down. The bid to put Moyer into private hands was a no-bid contract going to Markell’s old butt-buddy “a for profit publicly listed corporation”. Even as Moyer aka The New Moyer tried to move out of the grips of K12 they had trouble because an internal $$ power grip.
Don ‘t get me wrong, I am not trying to save Moyer! The current Moyer board turned a blind-eye to real transparency and the sad part is, DE DOE went alone. Even to this date documentation on DE DOE and K12.inc contracts haven’t been made pubic. Why? Perhaps the contract gave K12.inc extra funding over and above other Delaware public / charter schools. Moyer was to shift from using commercial credit-card to state P-card. Moyer isn’t listed in Markell’s P-card transparency website. Moyer indeed does have structural leadership issues but the biggest downfall and reason behind Moyer current failures are PARENTS. Moyer parents put too much trust in the schools leadership and appears to have just gone for the ride! Public schools including charter schools belong to the public and when the public and parents within fail to take “ownership” children lose! There is one sure way Moyer can be saved but “WILMINGTON” lacks to will to rise to the occasion! No not riots! To stage a massive protest and I am talking thousands! You ain’t never going to take back the streets if you can stand and save one school. Governor Markell would love to see Moyer buried along with all the $$$$$ secrets.
