Delaware Governor Markell refuses to allow Title 1 parents a voice in school reform

Christina moves to delay Priority Schools decision Matthew Albright, The News Journal

With two days remaining before a threatened state takeover of its three inner-city schools, the Christina board delayed action on the state’s priority schools plan – but it gave Superintendent Freeman Williams permission to work with education officials on a compromise.

Department spokeswoman Alison May said officials there were willing to extend the deadline for negotiations – at least for the moment. Gov. Jack Markell has said he will close those schools down or hand them over to charters or other outside operators if the district and state can’t agree.

The board’s move comes after the Department of Education rejected draft plans the district had crafted after months of meetings with parents, teachers and others in the schools’ communities.

So much for COLLABORATION! I’d say let Markell have his way with a takeover of these schools! Look at the fine job Markell did with Moyer by handing it over to his old bud via a no-bid contract.

What about Title 1 Section 1118? Yike I forget, Markell including elimination of section 1118 as part of his NCLB Wavier. Where are the Hick’s twins?

    By playing along AT ALL, the Conceding School District has said that Marxell knows better. -Bell rings, ref raises Curly’s hand- Red Clay Conceding School District has moved beyond that already and is into the phase where everybody whose life is made worse forgets about the wherefores and what have yous. What good is stalling the inevitable? Placing the commas does not a victory make.
