Another White-Flight agenda brewing in Delaware / Red Clay School District

Watch this video ! Delaware is next!

Just as the charter school movement was born and crafted in Red Clay, the school savings accounts agenda aka school vouchers are being plotted.

Many in Red Clay aren’t happy with WEIC and the Red Clay school board’s recent blunder. However, WEIC is fueling the need for school vouchers that are nothing more the another escape-hatch for affluent whites. Sure there’ll be new private schools popping up to attract minorities or even low performing charter schools closing and converting to private schools. Remember what I’ve been saying, traditional public schools “had to fail” to justify charter schools and now charter schools “have to fail” to justify school vouchers. Once the Christina / Red Clay merge happens or a done-deal waiting for the plan to go in motion, every Red Clay board member will be voted out of office. And it seems PTA is kicking around ideas to get board members booted off before the end of their term.

As you can see the next phase re: charter schools have to fail, ACLU: Delaware charter schools causing resegregation.” 

This is the Delaware seed legislation using disability and poverty as the hook-in. If this legislation were to pass the $$$$ vacuum created in traditional public schools compound by that of charter schools would cause an implosion of what’s left of the public school system.

Hudson and Lavelle both are legislators serving in Red Clay.  Hudson is a Greenville elitist.  

Sponsor:   

Rep. Hudson & Sen. Lavelle 

HOUSE BILL NO. 353
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE ESTABLISHING THE PARENT EMPOWERMENT EDUCATION SAVINGS ACCOUNT ACT.

(6) “Eligible student” means a resident of Delaware who is any of the following:

(a) A “child with a disability” identified as having a disability under section 504 of the rehabilitation act of 1973 (29 United States Code section 794); a child who because of mental, physical, emotional, developmental, speech or learning disability problems, as defined by the Department of Education rules and regulations approved by the State Board of Education, requires special education and related services in order to develop that person’s own capabilities. A child with a disability is eligible for services beginning on the child’s third birthday, or earlier if otherwise provided in Delaware Code, Title 14, Chapter 31.

(b) Any elementary or secondary student who was eligible to attend a public school in Delaware in the preceding semester or is starting school in Delaware for the first time and is a member of a household whose total annual income defined in Section 3, paragraph 4 of this act.

(c) A child of a parent or guardian who is a member of the armed forces of the United States and who is on active duty.

(d) A child who was or is a ward of the juvenile court and who achieved permanency through adoption or permanent guardianship.

“We always talk about how, in Delaware, the money follows the child. But that’s only true within the government schools,” said House Minority Whip Deborah Hudson, one of the bill’s sponsors. “That unnecessarily limits some kids, and we want to change that.”

“When a family is challenged economically, they can be trapped in failing schools or in a school that doesn’t meet what their kid needs,” said Senate Minority Whip Greg Lavelle, another sponsor. “We want to give them the option to send their children to the school that is best for them.”

So Greg, protect the gates of Charter School of Wilmington and give these children vouchers to get into Sanford? You know damn well Markell’s want-to-be minoritie leaders will open private schools or close and convert minority charter school to get a piece of this $$$$ gravy train. 

You can bet every affluent parent will get a 504 to qualify until the law is modified to allow all student this opportunity.

WEIC is setting the stage to help push this allegation to reality and weak-kneed Red Clay board members will get the boot.

  1. The way I understand what I have been told about this is it will be up to the individual private school to accept the vouchers or not. As you said, what this will do is prop up brand new private schools who will suck up the money and not perform like most of the charters. Parents will blindly sign up for a new private school thinking it will be like tower hill or independence or archmere.

  3. What amount of money is being proposed to follow the child, in this legislation? Is it a “voucher” for the amount that the child’s family contributed via property taxes, which in the case of lower-income kids may be nothing? Or is it an amount sufficient to send a high-needs child to a specialty school like UD’s College School (upwards of $20K)? If the latter, how much money can be anticipated to leave the public schools (of all stripes) for private options, in the event that this passes?

    Do we know, from other areas that have tried vouchers, what the impact on private school tuitions is when vouchers become available? I would think that the tuitions at existing private schools would rise by (surprise!) something close to the amount of the “voucher” that families suddenly have access to.

With vouchers, there will be any number of fly-by-night “voucher schools” popping in and out of existence like mushrooms to collect the voucher amount, whatever it is.Like charter grifters on steroids.

      For Eve Buckley, I believe that the voucher would be for something like the average of state-local-federal expenditures per student in her home district. A real voucher might even allow for unit-proportionate adjustment for basic-complex-intense. If the voucher is used for an established and well-known independent school then there should be few concerns. I will be concerned “when” Mike O’Choice opens his School Of Mock and starts enrolling students for their public dollars.

    • The bill in question has a sliding scale starting with:
      “(1) For students from households qualifying for the federal free or reduced-price lunch program, the amount granted to the student’s Parent Empowerment Education Savings Account shall be equal to the dollar amount the resident school district would have received to serve and educate the eligible student from state sources had the student enrolled there.”

      100% FRL – 100% voucher
      150% FRL – 75% voucher
      200% FRL – 50% voucher
      250% FRL – 25% voucher

      Very few families would NOT be eligible for this voucher. Around half of all Delaware schoolchildren would be voucher-eligible at the 100% level. A fair amount of the rest would be eligible for a partial voucher.

      So to improve on democracy, we should remove legislated enrollment ceilings from charter schools and let the public decide which schools they wish to attend. And, in turn, let the popular schools expand and properly downsize the unpopular schools. Those enrollment ceilings have the effect of “turning away” students who are interested in attending, all of whom can be easily verified by the extensive appliation pools and extensive waiting lists. The legislature is “turning away” those students.

      Oh (aka, “O”) — wait — were you talking about public magnet and IB schools turning away students? My bad.

  6. Pencadermom,
    Your ill and uninformed attitude toward daycares that are of a provable high quality but still embrace their moral obligation to admit and care for those less economically fortunate than you shows you for what you are and how you feel about those who are different than you. Call me or email me and I will personally accompany you to a half-dozen wonderfully constructive and instructive daycares that take, care for and love “those” children who are “purchase of care” eligible. Most of “those” parents of “those” children are gainfully employed and make very little money but have to leave their children to earn enough for food, clothing and shelter for their families. Maybe you’re reflexively responding to your less than enthusiastic willingness to have your children in school with “those” people that you are so willing to stereotype and demonize. I’m not a cat person but I think the average cat, despite their reputation for aloofness, would be more willing than yourself to accept different cats and people. These words may appear harsh and accusatory but an attitude borne of ignorance and unwillingness to not educate oneself to be less ignorant often deserves a harsh rebuke. You have my number if you wish for me to arrange those visits.

  7. I feel many of them are understaffed. They get less money for purchase of care so probably can’t help but be understaffed. I wouldn’t want my kid in an understaffed daycare. That has NOTHING to do with the children or the parents. Nothing at all.
    That being said, I should have really added that when I wrote that, I was picturing home daycares. Do you think they are all fulfilling a moral obligation or could it be that some of them are taking families who have limited choices? Some home daycares have waiting lists. What would make a home day care have a waiting list? Do you think a home day care with a waiting list is taking purchase of care? That is basic economics and supply and demand.
    But I do stand corrected. I shouldn’t have made a blanket statement. Just because a center doesn’t take purchase of care, that in no means would mean that it is a good center. And I’m sure there are good purchase of care centers. So thank you for correcting me. I accept that my comment needed correcting but I don’t need educating. If you are going around checking on centers, kudos to you. But could you please try to realize that every statement that someone says isn’t always because they think they are better or above someone else? Why is it that when I said I wouldn’t send my kid (or a cat) somewhere, you had to instantly think that it was because of how I feel about the children there, or their parents, or the people who work there, and not that there might be something wrong with the system itself? and then go right to putting me down? Show me where I put down a person in my comment..

  8. You put down all daycares that take purchase of care children payments and their staffs and management. You don’t even have the basic knowledge that ALL daycares are licensed by the state to legally operate and they are ALL required to maintain a certain ratio of teachers, workers and management per number of students (also determined by age groups which cannot be co-mingled) or lose their licenses. There are no daycares that can afford to pay enough staff that they can maintain an over-staffing. Also there are many home daycares with waiting lists that do take purchase of care because that money only supplements the fee for service with the difference made up by the parent. Usually 65% POC and 35% from the parent. Your defensive posturing and total lack of knowledge of how these private businesses work and what they are forced to comply with simply fortifies the presumption that you have drawn some type of stereotypical conclusion that use see as self justification. Nothing in my attempt to educate you on this matter resembles a put down such as you seem to be exercising in your world of generalizing and stereotyping your opinion of others.

      “My words must be like a breath of fresh air …..” Not so much.

      Maybe a townhall meeting where a full room of constituents could convince you that the needs of the many parents who have had to swallow TPS referendums and false promises, are not being met. That these needs are sanctimoniously dismissed for some other “moral” obligation to the rest of society who have systematically CHOSEN unproductive, dysfunctional, and unsuccessful pathways. (Fathering children of, allowing oneself to be impregnated by) That the needs of those who absorb society’s resources are tipping the balance of who supplies the resources. That the financial engine of employment has been blunted by over regulation, over taxation, and over extension of what the state spends.

      Come on John, have a townhall meet and greet and lets have a discussion about how we could get our roads repaired, create construction jobs, build more schools and have better state facilities if we would just eliminate prevailing wage. Let’s have the broad discussion on the record for all to hear instead of fondling the unions’…..parts in private? Maybe some of your sanctimonious righteousness would be less sharp in a room where the vast majority of Delawareans are NOT union members and want their kids to attend good schools where behavior is upheld based on behavior rather than ethnicity or demographic.

      In lieu of that, your personal phone call invitations are nothing more than attempts at meetings behind the curtain of plausible denial. A “bluster” to deflect from the overall effectiveness of our pontificating legislators. We the plebeians have kids to raise, jobs to attend 50 weeks a year, extra curricular meetings to shuttle the kids to and the never ending task of earning enough money to pay for all these “eligible” FRL student lunches and POC daycares while supplying our own kids with PB&J’s. Not to mention pay for Indian river inlet bridge 2- 3 times and cover losses of the Bloom facility. Sorry, I won’t be calling you or visiting daycare centers anytime soon. I enjoy my free time (what little there is) doing something other than being spoken to by someone who clearly has no intention in addressing the needs of the majority of his constituents.

    • Sorry John, while your offer is “attractive” in a sadistic kind of way, your invitation is lacking a little panache. I don’t want “your” (taxpayer derived) money, for a meal. I also have this funny requirement that my staff and my employer (you know, the entity that makes it possible for me to pay for PB& J’s for my kids) kind of need me at work to perform the task I’ve been hired for. I don’t have the flexibility to socialize and pontificate at the local Friendly’s. I bet the senior crowd can attend though and they might be good to ask about CSD’s last referendum proposal and tax hikes. Ask them if they would prefer to pay 10 million dollars at union wages for a road project or the same road project for 6 million at non-union wages. Ask them if they like the idea that Senator McDaniel (a former union guy) tried to shakedown UofD into building the power plant in residents’ backyard.

      I am sure they are informed sufficiently to understand your explanations.

      As far as bigotry or class warfare goes, I don’t give one wit what color an individual is, it is inconsequential to the greater good. I don’t care whether an individual’s ability is in television repair, janitorial services or astrophysics. If they take their opportunities seriously, make good decisions about basic self preservation, and attempting to lead productive lives, then that is the overwhelming goal. If they repeatedly make bad decisions, endanger society, endanger from neglect their children, endanger themselves, game the system, manipulate the system to be unproductive, and otherwise steal resources from those who provide it, then it is they who I have a problem with. While you may argue this as selfish, it is far from it. It is a plea for society to demand that individuals be responsible for themselves. Ignoring educational opportunities because it isn’t cool to study, ignoring reproductive choices(simple choices like don’t have unprotected sex) to prevent unwanted pregnancies, knowingly having multiple children that cannot be cared for, encouraging 5 year olds to fight in the street, are all red flags that are NOT society’s (taxpayers) fault. Nor are they society’s ultimate responsibility. Helping someone when they are down to get back up is one thing, abusing the generosity of society and not being responsible for one’s own life because it requires “effort”, that is something entirely different. It has nothing to do with color, ethnicity or background.

      I don’t “get mine” by screwing over other people. I don’t begrudge helping when it is needed. Being an enabler of dysfunctional behavior, I do have a problem with and just like enabling an alcoholic, at some point, the grown ups have to tell the abuser, that’s it, it is up to you, step up or step off but the taxpayer supported financial train is over. Somehow you’ll twist this comment but I have to go back to work. Lunch break is over.
