The results are in for one of the most influential positions in Delaware’s education system: Delaware State Education Association (DSEA) President.
Voting was open from January 9th through 23rd for the 12,000 members of Delaware’s teachers’ union (DSEA) and the result today was a tie between Mike Matthews and Karen Crouse. The two will enter a runoff election scheduled for a later date.
Stephanie Ingram from Colonial School District was elected as Vice President.
The DSEA President position doesn’t get the public scrutiny of a Secretary of Education or district Superintendent but it is a big role and one to watch. It currently commands a salary of around $130k per year (more than double the average teacher salary inDelaware) and can have a major influence — for better or worse— on education policy decisions and elections in the state.
