Markell vetoes Delaware testing opt-out bill Matthew Albright, The News Journal
Gov. Jack Markell has vetoed a controversial bill that would allow parents to pull their kids out of the state’s standardized test.
Did you honestly think he would support it ?
Markell has opposed the bill since its inception and rallied business and civil rights leaders against it.
Is that “rallied” or “Ra$$ied” ?
In a press release, a group of Wilmington civil rights advocates praised Markell’s decision. They included Deborah Wilson, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League; Maria Matos, president and CEO of the Latin American Community Center; H. Ray Jones Avery, executive director of the Christina Cultural Arts Center; and New Castle County Councilman Jea Street.
