Breaking News! Delaware State Rep Jaques masturbates Gov Markell in public

Test critics gear up to override Markell’s opt-out veto Matthew Albright, The News Journal

“If you’re a Democrat, and the governor’s a Democrat, you have to think long and hard, ‘Do I want to override my governor?’ ” said Rep. Earl Jaques, D-Glasgow, chairman of the House Education Committee. “It has to be a really big issue for you to do that.”

So the rights of parents isn’t a big enough issue for this lapdog to override Governor Markell’s veto!  “you have to think long and hard” Yep that is how the public been getting it from Governor Markell! Long and hard! “Do I want to override my governor” Kind of hard for you to do when you’re on your knees in front of Governor Markell! “It has to be a really big issue for you to do that.” What! like cut pensions for sorry ass legislators who proclaim they represent the people?

  1. Kilroy… You have gone to new levels! WOW! But please, stop mincing words… how do you REALLY feel about this situation? 😉

  2. If you are a Democrat and the people who voted you into the office you hold are (mostly) Democrats…then what? What do you do about that? You don’t think long and hard. Unless you want to think long and hard about a new job.

    Legislators would be wise to think about how they got where they are. Voters. Plural. Lots of plural. Not Jack. Singular Jack.

      If all that legislators should do is act as a weathervane for the constituents, then let’s cut out these middle(wo)men altogether and go with direct-voter referendums like California has done.

      Until then, we have “representative” government.

      These legislators should be thinking more broadly than the latest animal spirits poll, they should be voting for the comprehensive long term balanced interests of the state, and they should not — ever — be paid enough to be “dependent” on the job and thus cast votes based on pecuniary self-interest.

      Improve the system (example, replace 10th grade SBA with SAT) but don’t go Luddite. Constructive boards and agencies need to understand the efficacy of their systems overall, including the achievement gaps, the per-school differences, the inter-district differences, and more.

      We improve what we measure. Measure nothing, improve nothing.

    • Publius, what in God’s name do you think “representative” means? To “represent” the people they serve. For someone who spouts off so much about education, I would think you of all people would know 10th graders don’t even take SBAC. They are 11th graders. I think most of us can agree that the only things you can measure are your inflated self-worth, the number of times you have come on here spouting your elitist crap, and the amount of time it will take until you finally stop drinking the Rodel Kool-Aid and realize your actions do far more damage to education than the thousands who support the veto override. “animal spirits poll”…not quite your Niche, is it?

    • So Jacques, (voted in by the same democrats that voted in Markell, who voted in Minner, and Carper, who will be the same democrats who vote Carney in,) is different and held to a different expectation? They ALL genuflect at the same alter and ultimately bow to the same democrats that voted for Obama who has shown such keen intuition on education.??? They don’t have to really care what you think when you keep voting them in.
      Come on, watch the clip, it’s the democrat Delawareway to a “T”.

      And y’all are upset Jaques votes with his governor? That’s funny. Markell along with the legislators, signed on to RTTT to get the federal money. Testing was required to get the money. Maybe being beholden to the democrat party and the DSEA that supports it isn’t so efficient? Opt out law will violate the contract your representative democrat government agreed to. Complaining or trying to change the rules AFTER the fact is a bit like the child who agrees to do the dishes for an allowance, gets the allowance, then won’t do the dishes because it’s “icky”. Are you prepared to give the money back? No? hmmmm, interesting perspective. Interested in making one law that violates another law, KO & JK? Yes? hmmm, again interesting.

      Keep banging your heads against the wall expecting a different result.

      As far as recalls, I want THAT on the next legislative session for ALL elected AND appointed positions. We should’ve been able to pull a Gray Davis on Markell, Murphy and Minner, and then maybe, just maybe, the elected/ appointed would be more receptive to rational / pragmatic /problem solving instead of Markell’s “yes man” brigade or our crazy uncle in the room.

    • MRyder, Race To The Top finished last year. The contract is null and void. Furthermore, the people of Delaware did not bring Smarter Balanced to Delaware. Mark Murphy signed an MOU to join a multi-state consortium. There was no town hall to discuss this with teachers or parents. It was all Governor Markell’s bidding.

      For the record, I have no problem with recall. I lived in California when Gray Davis was recalled, and I voted for it. If Jaques or Sokola were in my district and there was recall ability, I would do it in a heartbeat. I know you would probably curl up and die rather than admit this, but Kowalko actually has more in common with you than you might think. In terms of giving my son allowance to do dishes and then he doesn’t do them, sorry, he was never given an allowance. Your analogy, to be frank, just plain sucks.

    • Kevin,
      You’re from CA/ lived there? That explains some things. Minnehan has the same baggage. Land of fruits and nuts.

      The statewide testing was a requirement of RTTT. Democrat elected state government is still beholden to its masters and programs and if tomorrow Markell were to say; no more state testing, what would the democrat talking point be?
      Markell: “We (Gov., legislature, DSEA, DOE, all superintendents, all schools) agreed to proceed down a path, pass unenforceable accountability laws, spend millions of taxpayer dollars on staff and supporting materials, and twist our school system into a pretzel. Well,… in hindsight, we shouldn’t have done that, sorry. Forget the whole thing happened. OK? Are we good? OK?! Yea! Next year everything will be great.”

      Seriously Kevin, the whole system is in conflict and Opting out is hardly an effective tool to end the dysfunction. And again, you already have the option to opt out without an additional law. Just as in obama’s gun executive actions, an opt out of the state testing law will not correct the problem they are unwilling to address. A state government bent on no accountability, DSEA appeasement, and delawareway politics. We need serious restructuring, district consolidation, reduction in educational/ government waste and a complete upheaval of the power brokers in charge.

    • M Ryder, on many of your points you and I are in agreement. Opt-out is a last straw defense for parents. As a result of opt-out, there are changes happening. They may not be visible to everyday citizens, but it is really getting people thinking about what a mess education is in Delaware and across America. It is also a way of letting those in power know that we are paying attention now and we don’t like what we are seeing. I do not believe opt-out solves the problems in education, but it is the only vessel parents can use that will ensure their voice is heard. Parents were shut out, or failed to speak when they needed to, and this is the result. A victory on the veto override will be celebrated, but it certainly isn’t a time to rest on our laurels. We need to continue the conversation and make sure we are a part of the discussion. Parents need to demand stronger representation in education decisions. I continue to be shocked when I speak to some people and they don’t know who their district rep or Senator is. But I can say a lot more people know now compared to a year ago. I’m actually working on an article about this very topic and how opt-out does not solve all the issues.

  4. Not new levels Kevin. But yes, you are right, Kilroy can leave quite the impression. When I think of Kilroys blog, I can’t help but picture Markell in knee pads.

      Funny — when I think of Kilroy’s blog I think of cheap whiskey, angry people with exceptional and inexplicable chips on their shoulders, and throwback-gurus harking back to the heydays of the now-confirmed-as-failed 20th century schooling system. I can’t help but picture the blathering of charter-haters who blog-comment on Kilroy, from the depths of the bowels of their nuclear shelters, as they damn Choice, progress, innovation, free will, and bona fide achievement. But most of all I picture certain so-called “representatives” — thinly-elected cussing and swaggering pugilists who flip their wigs and/or their crew cuts like sailors giddy on near-beer and short shore-leave, looking for any port in their storm of tilting windmills and bloviating to seek the public’s support to clap for them.

      Kilroy is a good egg, with an occasional eruption unbecoming. Kilroy keeps the kooks in knstraints. The flotsam of hangers-on are another matter altogether. Thanks to Darwin, those flawed blusterers will decline in number over time. The logic of Choice and free will will prevail.

    • That’s funny Publius, when I think of you I think of very cheap whiskey trying to disguise itself as Pappy Van Wrinkle. When I think of choice, I think of real choice and limited choice, which is what you represent. Funny how that “failed 20th century schooling system” created you and who you are now along with most of the commenters on this blog. You don’t even understand true free will as you hide underneath the Governor’s education apron and allow choice to be a bad word in Delaware. Maybe when you actually get into the city schools, and look beyond the elitism you represent, you can see firsthand how your version of choice just doesn’t work. The reason most on here have ZERO respect for you is because you represent the worst this modern-day education society has created. Achievement is only “bona fide” if all have the same ability to reach that zenith. In your education world, they don’t, which is why you just don’t matter. You are a speck on an atom of a bygone day when those who thought they were better than others had importance. You are an aging dinosaur…
