Delaware legislative session is in full swing and it appears state legislators are afraid to step on Governor Markell’s toes re: fractures in charter school oversight! Wilmington is saying no more charters schools until DE DOE gets a grip on the capacity to provide ongoing proactive oversight! Nothing being done about charter school funds being used a personal piggy-bank whereas, usage of P-card isn’t the law allowing commercial credit-cards to be used at free will and not reported in monthly financial reports. No penalty for charter schools not keeping their board meeting minutes up to date and same goes for CBOC’s.
Meantime back on the ranch closure of charter schools sending children back to feeder schools not meeting AYP is praised as demonstrating courage by Secretary of Education Mark Murphy and his Michelle Rhee want-to-be.
No doubt about it, Markell will keep moving full-steam ahead with his education reform wrecking-ball! It’s all about the kids!! Sure !
