Essays and Narratives on the Desegregation Experience
Folks go read this book I linked to. Read what Joe Biden says.
Joe, Delaware supported you your entire political career and now it’s time to bring it home. Washington and Jack Markell made a mess of Delaware’s public school system. You were part of the machine that broke it and now you must be part of the process to fix it!
We have public school Choice with poor minorities being locked out because there is no preferential Choice transportation serving those without adequate transportation ! Charter schools that discriminates using achievement level as a means to determine “specific interest” admission preference supported by a charter school law crafted by racist. Neighborhood School law that serves the more afluent suburban student (parents) whereas all the new schools are being built in the suburbs and none in Wilmington. Red Clay “your school district” has not traditional middle or high school in Wilmington. Charter schools designed for at-risk black children! We can’t have Title 1 pull-out programming because of concerns they would be racially identifiable! But racially identifiable charter school are fine? Joe, Dr King wouldn’t of settled for De Facto Segregation! Will you?
Wilmington Delaware is in a social meltdown mode and handing poor city school over to Red Clay School District is a social injustice.
Joe, ain’t going to be no retirement for you! Got work to do !
