REFOCUS THE ROLE OF DOE FROM A REGULATORY AGENCY TO A SUPPORT AGENCY. Change has to start at the top. The Delaware Department of Education should be a support system for teachers and administrators. Too often, it acts as an enforcement agency focused on implementing reforms. Teachers and principals are in the best position to understand what their students need. DOE should be a resource that helps educators implement their ideas and move students along the path to success. John will reorient the Department of Education from a focus on monitoring and mandates to a focus on collaboration and support for districts. He’ll create resource centers at DOE to ensure that teachers and curriculum directors have access to experts with deep knowledge in critical areas who can provide advice and guidance and help share best practices across district lines.

Indeed Governor Carney! Its time to clip the Delaware Department of Education’s wing! The infestation of Rodel and its control of Delaware’s public education needs to end! However, the big question is, will you follow the egotistic path Jack Markell took! Are you going to praise him for all the so-called positive education reforms he put in place ? I hope not!
As for the next Delaware Secretary of Education! Why are you holding back in the announcement? Are you waiting for him to clear Christina and become a free agent?
