Something Doesn’t Add Up With National PTA’s Intimidation Letter To Delaware PTA…

Exceptional Delaware 2018


I was thinking about this a lot the past two days.  Since I posted the National PTA “Comply Or We Will Make You” letter to the Delaware PTA, something didn’t feel quite right.  Was it the absolute absurdity and gall of National PTA, or the timing of it?

The Delaware PTA heavily advocated House Bill 50, the Delaware opt-out legislation that our cowardly weasel of a Governor vetoed last July.  When an attempt  to have our legislators do the right thing and override Markell’s veto, the Delaware PTA staged a rally outside of Legislative Hall in Dover.  This was a month and a half ago.  The very next week, the Delaware PTA announced National PTA would be coming out with a position statement against opt-out very soon.  They did so in the beginning of February.

    • Yeah, you would side with National PTA Publius! You just love the Kool-Aid! And if you don’t like the comparisons Mr. I love high-stakes testing, then don’t act the part.
