Yep those rumors are flying again! DE Sec of Ed Murphy is preparing and exit !

Multiple sources indicates Mark Murphy is out-bound ! The sad part of it all it our state legislators haven’t stood-up and demanded Murphy’s removal! 

So let’s just go along with this rumor! Murphy goes so who is next in line?? South Street Jenny ;). Bobby A? Merv? Mike Matthews? Publius?

Personally, it is time the position of Delaware Secretary of Education should be an elected one. We need a firewall between public schools and asshole governors.  John Carney once floated the idea of decentralizing the Delaware Department of Education. Something has to give and it looks like Markell will continue his wrongheaded public education agenda because our state legislators lack the courage to put an end to it! You’d think at best they would call for Murphy’s removal and do get me wrong, Murphy is person but as a public education leader I am sorry, he sucks!

  4. FYI, DDOE leaders have blocked education innovation too long.
    By ignoring the strategic alliances for Quality Education, it has placed
    Delaware on the low side of the bar. Advancements made in 2002, 2005 to 2008 with Milford, Red Clay, Christina, Seaford and Laurel schools have not been sustained.

    My calls and invitations to collaborate with Sec Murphy, Mr. Blowman, Mary Kate McLaughlin, Penny Schwinn and others are ignored, while
    in PA, MD, NJ, schools are deploying quality education initiatives in continuous improvement, planning, and program assessment and sustainability.

    Mark Holodick shared with me at a Rodel Presentation that he is unaware of our work in Delaware from 2000 to present and the Delaware state quality program. This, despite several Models of Excellence Award recipients. UD, Wilmington U, Wesley and DTCC
    do not teach these 21st century education components.

    We need education leaders who are aware of what’s going on around them. Leadership is now expected to be prepared for a future of: volatility, uncertainty, chaos, and ambiguity.

  5. Since local districts must hold a referendum to maintain finances let the doe hold a referendum to see who votes to keep it up and running

  6. Mary Kate McLaughlin resigned but I think the rest of the Clown College is intact, at least right now.

    • Thank you and Thanks to Rep. Kim Williams for helping to arrange a phone call with Mary Kate McLaughlin.

      Since 1993, I’ve watched this carousel go around, stiff-arming any
      real, research based innovation and solutions to school improvement.

      Senior leaders invite comment and opportunities for learning.

  7. I think Mark Holodick has been groomed for the position. He’d be reunited w/ former BSD CFO Blowman.

  10. Everyone who wanted Lillian gone, what did you get?
    Everyone who wants Murphy gone, what are you going to get?

    Remember, we have a state senate that refuses to ask questions or deign to exercise its consent role with gubernatorial appointments in a serious or thoughtful way. That’s not an opinion, look at their record.
