36 Yes, 3 No, 2 Absent! Next stop, Delaware Senate! The vast majority of the Delaware House of Representatives voted yes for the parent opt-out bill, House Bill 50. They nay votes were State Reps. Earl Jaques, Michael Barbieri, and Timothy Dukes. Absent were Stephanie Bolden and Jack Peterman.
From my view, key players that changed the tide were State Representative John Kowalko, blogger Kevin Ohlandt ( Exceptionable Delaware) and Delaware State PTA President Terri Hodges. But certainly all those who rallied around this cause!
Shout out to State PTA President Terri Hodges, your stance of opting-out your child made it loud and clear! Delaware PTA hears the call of parents, teachers and the community and the fight for local control is on!
