Save The Date: Parent Press Conference Is Now April 1st

Exceptional Delaware 2017

No April Fools!  The date for the Parent Press Conference will be changed to April 1st, at 5pm outside Legislative Hall in Dover.  This way more people who want to come can attend!  Sorry for the last minute decision on this Wednesday.  This is not a rally.  This is a press conference so parents can talk about their frustration with what has been happening in Delaware education.  The main points will be House Bill 50, opt out and standardized testing, but also the frustration parents are feeling with education and being left out of key decisions.  Any organization or group is more than welcome to attend and participate, but the main focus is everyday parents.

Please save the date and do your best to attend.  The more people that are there, the bigger the difference it could make.  Please contact me at kevino3670@yahoo.com if you would like to speak at…

Not sure how many readers you have Kilroy, but I’m guessing it ain’t a ton of parents.. and the truly ‘left out’ will not know anything about this. Ever. Yes, unfortunately, I’m not the only ‘stupid and selfish’ out there.. yes, there are SO many of us.. It’s downright scary!!!

      Sad to say Pencadermom, many parents don’t get involved until after someone directly impacts their own child and the children who are in the greatest of need are often children of parents that don’t give a rat’s ass! The visits here go up and down as the issues do. At the end of the day The Smarter Balanced Assessment won’t impact academically successful students but will take away tangible needs of at-risk students who need smaller class sizes requiring more teachers and paraprofessionals. As far as Kilroy’s, if by chance somewhere out there I made a positive difference to just one persons my existence was well worth it.

    Speaking of “selfish,” I think I’ll drag my hot dog cart down there and enrich myself amongst this large crowd, selling at confiscatory prices. Or does thinking that about the size of the crowd make me “stupid”?

    • Depends on what kind of math you are using: real math, or Common Core math. You should fit right in with all the companies that are using our schools to sell their “services” to our children. Go for it.

      That reply is -almost- “not bad.” 😉

      Are you oversubscribed yet for this event, Angos? How much for an SRO ticket?

    Denizens!!

    Only 5 shirt starching days left before the Press Conference!! Don’t dawdle, shine your shoes and clean your best jostling jacket in anticipation of working your way to a mic.

    And those so burdened, be sure to get permission to leave work early; allow plenty traffic jam time, and walking time to get from some hinterland place to park to the teeming mass of speakers gathered around Angos.

    And watch for my hot dog cart. $1.00 off for everyone displaying his Kilroy Decoder Ring!! $2.00 off your next visit if you get your sound bite on more than six media outlets.
