Charter School of Wilmington & Discrimination: Student Denied Due Process and Subject To Potential Profiling By Head Of School

Exceptional Delaware 2017

When people think of the Charter School of Wilmington, they think about one of the highest-rated high schools in the state.  But beneath the shiny veneer, there is a very dark undertone that is pervasive throughout the school.   This became clear to a student who I will call Bill (to protect his identity), and his mother, Michelle (also protecting her identity).  Bill’s story is the part about Charter School of Wilmington nobody from the school will admit or own up to: a culture of superiority and class, with very few minorities other than Asians.  The very few minorities that are present at the school are few and far between compared to most Delaware schools.  For Bill, what happened to him could easily be seen as racial or even class profiling, or both.

Charter School of Wilmington has the following profiles for race: 63.7% White, 26.4% Asian, 6% African-American, 3.3% Hispanic/Latino…

    Another leadership mess on Red Clay’s hand and I hope the lawsuit names some Red Clay admins who are the oversight authority for CSW.

    Kid admits selling dope. Card carrying Aggrieved Profiteers Society members demand a ruling of innocent by virtue of the legal escape clause: Guilty While Black. Supporters of the Allegedly Aggrieved (Angos, et.al.) rush in with additional fuel for the fire. Society at large set back further, yet again, with most damage accruing to the black members of said society.

      Same difference Firestarter; substitute the general “minority” for the specific color or ethnic identity if you choose not to cite it. A small and insignificant (perhaps) mistaken citation on my part based on a gamble for which you have maliciously and with malice aforethought cited the odds of success: “58% African-American, 32% White, 12% Hispanic/Latino, Below 1% for Asian, and Below 1% for Hawaiian.”

      What would actually help, is white liberals with some sort of guilt complex ending the giving of aid to The Perpetually Aggrieved forever demanding reparations, restitution and findings of Innocence by Excuse, especially the aid given those who (a) sell dope, (2) should be in jail, and (d) endanger innocent striving Charter School attendees in search of excellence.

      Maybe, if the Pot Stirrers have to stand in a circle so identified as the system self-corrects in a longer period of time than likely would have been required had they not, well, stirred the pot.

    I don’t understand why the school did what they did right from the first minute, or did I miss something.. shouldn’t they have called the police the very first minute that they busted him? How is it that he (and the other student involved) didn’t end up charged by the police the same day?

    • Pencadermom great point! They did not want their castle to look like a Crack house. The reality is there are processes the school staff members are required to follow. I think it should be illegal and individuals should be personally accountable when they do not follow the rules regarding students. All of this delay should expose there was foul play at play. Why is there only issue with the kid? Why do adults get a pass? I’m not talking to you Pencadermom I’m speaking in general….

    • They weren’t charged for the same reason two assailants at CHS weren’t charged with assault after they physically assaulted, beat and robbed a student of his wallet and 400.00 electronic device. EVEN when the police had their name and proof of the crime, the school and board,who were informed of it, refused to press charges that occurred on school grounds.
      To Save face.
      Nice transparency huh? Manipulate perception instead of dealing with facts. These aren’t the droids your looking for. You can go about your business.

  4. Couple things happening here. Kid screwed up royally and got caught. CSW didn’t want people to know that drugs are an issue in the school. They are an issue. Kid should be expelled, but the reason they didn’t was self-serving. Mom should have taken the diploma and shut up. Kid could get charged now. Bad move.

  6. Maybe the gender was changed and you just don’t know it. Hmmm… But seriously, I agree Pencadermom. They should have called the police right away. The fact that they didn’t is an even bigger question. According to the timeline, it wasn’t until John Sadowski, Director of Climate and Discipline at the DOE, contacted them after he found out about it. I can imagine the call “Why the hell didn’t you call the police?” “Were we supposed to?” “Duh, and I thought you guys were the brilliant school….” What is even more bizarre is NO marijuana was ever found. Say what you will if the kid did it. I can’t offer any excuse for that, nor would I try. But the school… I can only guess they didn’t expel him cause they didn’t want it on THEIR permanent record.

    “LastDEconservative what’s the excuse for the adults that broke the rules? Do we excuse them? Let’s punish them simultaneously! Agreed?” – I’m not lastdel but I would say yes something should be done if the adults did not follow standards or laws. I don’t know what those are, I would assume that it would be to call the police. Just don’t think that this kind of thing doesn’t happen in every single school. And to Kevin, do you think this is a race issue or truck driving (lol) thing? Does the mother think that? I’m just trying to think of what you (or the mother) thinks would have happened differently if a car driving white kid was selling drugs..

      LOL. No, it’s not about ‘where,’ you know where, mom, it’s HOW do you get it there! I’ve missed at least 10 times since the new format came in. Could be for blog host entertainment.

      Anyway, if you’re interested, I responded to the query you joined in on this way (above, maybe even in the right place):

      “Maybe [punish the adults, too], if the Pot Stirrers have to stand in a circle so identified as the system self-corrects in a longer period of time than likely would have been required had they not, well, stirred the pot.”

      In other words, kids and dope (allegedly), irresponsible adults in charge (allegedly) are issues that have been with us for a long time, and tend to work themselves out to the right in the end. Adding Pot Stirrers, Aggrievement Pimps and such self aggrandizers does nothing for the good of the game.

    “In other words, kids and dope (allegedly), irresponsible adults in charge (allegedly) are issues that have been with us for a long time, and tend to work themselves out to the right in the end” – After being raised with brothers, raising boys, and being around my boys friends, I’ve learned that things don’t always work themselves out, especially when you bail them out of trouble too readily.-(parents and schools) Sometimes throwing the book at a teenager (or at least hitting him a couple times with it, right at his not-so-developed- teenage brain) can help to scare him into thinking twice next time he comes up with a stupid idea.
    And of course, the same would apply to girls too, but boys, WOW, they really are from Mars, aren’t they? 🙂

      Agreed. Which is one of many reasons the govt schooling (not education) system is a failure. This logic has been long since abandoned. Instead, the excuse makers (AKA pot stirrers) have taken over, as you recognize in your next note. I’d rather the “work out” take a bit longer … than take forever and a day because the pimps wish to drag it out for their own imperious motives and self aggrandizement.

      Yes, on boys v. girls, but then again, they are handy around large heavy objects which need to be somewhere else.

    Sorry, I’m not sure what you’re talking about Kevin. Read the last comments on your post? From the CSW students? Please clarify. By the way, I did read something where you keep wondering why not let the student walk in graduation.. wouldn’t that be the least of his concerns? That’s a little slap on the wrist. And you might not realize this but not walking in graduation is common practice as a punishment in many schools.
    ps Where’s all your detective work on traditional public schools and what’s going on inside? Although I don’t agree with not calling the police when a law has been broken (and really just because I would love to see this kid get into a little ‘real’ trouble as I think it could benefit him in his future and possibly stop him from getting into actual real trouble),anyway, I have a feeling this kind of stuff is happening in many or all schools. But it’s fun to post a little ‘gotcha’ story about a charter school I guess eh?

  15. Hello Kilroy. I used to read your blog earlier and then stopped. stumbled on this accidentally last night. I believe 100 percent that the good cop bad cop thing happened and due process is not followed by the school. My child went through a similar incident. I have no idea how the board appointed Dr. Paoli who has no personal skills to lead the school . A sea change from Mr. Baldwin. The discrimination at the school is not on race , religion and the like but academic. In my case they wanted to protect more the first in the school . My child was in the top 5 but not the first and they called the child to the room (due to a student prank) and the accusation was that the child was trying to under mine the first in the school wrt a homework. None of them happened the way the school interpreted. Rather than patiently listening , corporal yelling and screaming happened to a teenager who was left completely shaken after the incident with a complete nervous breakdown. The teachers at the school are definitely sub par and the homework routine burdensome. For all the gloating , CCSA stands way apart when it comes to dealing with issues on discipline, teaching and the like. The hype about charter is way over blown. A call to a board member (an acquaintance of ours ) results with a meek reply., In my case a call came after nearly an hour of interrogation and the first thing I asked was if the conversation was recorded . I suggested then to them that they record the conversation and also told them that in the event of a repeat, I need to be informed before the discussion/interrogation starts. After all, these are still teenagers!. I do not want to comment on the drug issue reported in this blog, , but yelling and screaming on a teenager does not reflect well on the school. Count me in if a class action is filed!
