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.
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.
