Long Title:

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO CHARTER SCHOOLS.

“This bill provides a moratorium on all new charter schools in Delaware until June 30, 2018 or until the State Board of Education develops a strategic plan for the number of charter, district, and vocational-technical schools in the State. Also, the bill requires review and comment from Wilmington’s Mayor and City Council before either a local school district or the Department of Education approves a charter in the City of Wilmington. Lastly, the bill requires the local school board’s approval for a charter school in the City of Wilmington before the Department of Education can approve the charter school.”


I still stand on my position re: a Wilmington School District that will include being charter school authorizing and oversight body. Also, I stand on my position re: needs based funding. We need to end the fragmented voice of Wilmington in regards to public education and unify all school within as one district and still allow Choice option for all students in and out of Wilmington. I honestly can’t see how Red Clay can improve more city schools when in fact they struggle with the one’s they have.

  1. So what you seem to be saying If I read you correctly is that we need to change the funding formula so Wall Street gets paid even more for putting charter schools into Wilmington? We have glimpsed the future!… You can’t have charters in Wilmington without them having every one of their strings pulled from Wall Street…
