And the Twin Poets know it ! 

DE DOE Charter Office continues to drop the ball as state legislators remain clueless !

Academia charter board makes secret personnel decision Xerxes Wilson, The News Journal11:59 p.m. EST January 15, 2015

The board of La Academia Antonia Alonso charter school met in an emergency meeting on Thursday and took action on a “personnel matter” that board members insisted keeping secret during and after the public hearing.

“We can’t discuss it right now because we have not informed the parties involved,” Matos said.

What the hell is going on with Delaware charter schools? It’s become nothing more than a game of Where’s Waldo!

The Delaware Department of Education’s Charter Office doesn’t even have this school on the DOE school profile webpage  The law requires all schools to post their board meeting agendas, board minutes and monthly financial reports on their webpage! So how in the hell can the public view this information if DE DOE Charter Office is asleep at the wheel?

Don’t worry Kilroy has found a link to La Academia Antonia Alonso charter school  However, the way parents and the community must wait until after the “next” meeting until board meeting minutes are approved and posted usually 15 days later it takes 45 days before parents and the community can view them. It appears this is how State Representative Debbie Hudson wants it! She killed her own legislation requiring all board meetings to be recorded and posted online within 10 day of any given public session of board meetings! Yea I know, this meeting was about personnel matter protected by confidentially laws ever “if” a crime was committed. Not the point!

The real question I have is , why isn’t there a link to this school’s webpage on DE DOE’s school profile page? At the end of the day, we can’t have strong schools and school leaders unless we have strong leadership in Dover! When can we turnaround the failed Delaware Department of Education? Just another reason we can’t allow Teach for America so-called unsung heroes serving in top leadership positions. The next two years of Markell leadership is going to be HELL! He Debbie, wake-up and help!

Wilmington street violence take the life of 16 year old A.I. High Freshman.

Another teen killed, Friday’s victim remembered Xerxes Wilson, The News Journal

Across the city an hour before, friends were gathered at a makeshift memorial at the 200 block of N. Broom St. for 16-year-old Jordan Ellerbe, an A.I. du Pont High School freshman who was fatally shot in the head in Wilmington’s Hilltop neighborhood Friday night. Several people visiting the memorial confirmed the victim’s name, though Wilmington Police had not Saturday.

“He was intelligent. He stayed geekin’,” said Ellerbe’s classmate who identified himself as Raheem H.

Raheem and friends buzzed around an altar of teddy bears and candles on the porch of a three-story row home where Ellerbe was gunned down. They used their phones to record sometimes teary memorials to their friend who they knew as ‘Jor jor’ while another friend spray-painted a tribute in the yard below.

“He was a fly guy, funny and hilarious. He always looked out for his friends and family. Anytime I was hungry or something he would always help me out,” Raheem said.

Red Clay School District spokesperson Pati Nash said the school will make counselors available to students on Monday morning.

I can only ask, how many police could be added to Wilmington’s street with the money being wasted on Governor Markell’s personal self-serving education agenda? But don’t worry Jack has yet another kick the can down the road crime task-force brewing! Our chances for positive “effective” change may be in the hands of AG Matt Denn and we all need to support him. I hope Markell doesn’t try to capitalize on Denn’s vision and efforts because that would be a real crime.

Wilmington parents and community please embrace AG Matt Denn as a friend! 

Message to Donald Trump

Dear Donald Trump:

As I was flipping channels I noticed your, I am running for president Iowa speech.  Mr. Trump I admire your tenacity but come on! You have as much chance of being president than our Delaware Publius being Delaware Secretary of Education a position Governor Jack Markell has reduced qualification of that of a gym teacher intern.

Mr Trump, the money you are pissing away on this foolish journey to the White House could be better served feeding the homeless ( yea I know in your eyes they are all lazy people) or perhaps add some teachers in a high poverty school.

Donald, yes I’d rather have you as president than Jeb Bush. But face it, Jeb is just another dreamer. How about if you come visit Kilroy down in Delaware! I think I can cut you a deal on some real-estate. Have you ever considered owning a state? Think of it ! Trumpaware :).  

Exceptional Delaware goes cryptic on Publius! Kilroy offers clue and his enigma machine!
