Education must be part of Wilmington’s solution to crime Delaware Voice Theo Gregory
The proposed Office of Education and Public Policy would focus on this broader need for the city to have a voice in education – and such engagement would institutionalize our city’s role in ensuring that our youngest residents receive a proper education and are afforded every opportunity to pursue their dreams and ambitions
You’re on to something Theo ! The reason the white parents tend to have it their way in Red Clay is because, they have VOICE. But I am here to tell you, moving more city kids under the control Red Clay is a big mistake. Wilmington needs it’s own high school and adequate middle school seats and Wilmington children need preferential Choice transportation with preferential Choice seating. The agenda to reform public education to address the achievement gap between black and white students has shifted to a college readiness agenda that leans towards whites using funding meant for the disadvantage children. The NCLB Wavier allows such flexibility AND the wavier allows the state and district to disregard Title 1 Section 1118. That is why section is being eliminated in the NCLB rewrite. Section 1118 was the heart and soul of Hicks Anderson movement! It gave Title 1 parents real voice at the table. Theo, where are the district and school level Title 1 PACs? They did away with them via some lame-ass white excuse. But it was because parent were gaining too much VOICE and district and DE DOE struggled to contain that VOICE. Theo, what happen to the Delaware State Parent Advisory Board? THEO WHAT HAPPEN TO TITLE 1 VOICE?
