Rep Longhurst inflicted with brain fart!

Report: more affordable after-school programs needed , The News Journal

Delaware needs more affordable and accessible after-school and summer-learning opportunities, according to a new report, especially as a lack of those services is leaving working families with insufficient after-school options and putting students at a disadvantage in school.

These were among the findings of the Statewide Afterschool Initiative Learning Task Force, which brought together a collection of leading after-school care providers, educators and state agencies last year. The task force, created by House Majority Leader Valerie Longhurst in June 2016, for the last several months has studied the issue of after-school and summer-break care for Delaware students, issuing its findings and recommendations Wednesday.

HELLO !!!!!!!!!!!!! NO MONEY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Funds for the extra school time were appropriated from 1997 to 2008 but cut in fiscal 2009 due to budget shortfalls, according to the task force’s report. It’s unlikely funding can be restored this year — the state is facing a $350 million budget deficit — but Longhurst said it should be made a priority in the near future

2009 !!! Isn’t that when Jack Markell became Governor ??

In the meantime, Longhurst would like to form an Expanded Learning Opportunities Council, which could work with the Department of Education to complete a detailed market study documenting “in detail, current after-school and summer program offerings throughout the state in order to identify gaps in services.”

Yep another study another committee! 

Val there ain’t no money !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Come on Kilroy, the State of Delaware is infected with Brain farting legislators and social justice warriors.
    Just envision Obi Wan Kenobi waving his hand and three fingers: “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”
    Reinterpreted for Delaware:
    “The Delaware Traditional public school system is wonderful, it’s the charters that are evil”.
    “The Delaware legislature is responsible and efficient with residents’ tax dollars, its all these selfish, stupid charter supporters skimming transportation funds that caused the 350 million shortfall.”
    “Wilmington is a highly respected, efficient, safe and well organized” city, it’s all the selfish charter supporters, racist white flight suburbanites, and heavy handed police who are to blame for Ms. Joyner’s death, the poor academic performance and the high murder rate.”

    LDC, did I miss anything?

    JK, are you the Sith Lord?

    Kilroy denizens, you decide.

      Great images, M. Any doubters should be comforted by the image of Kwacko, obviously lecturing one of The Stupid, as the would be caretaker of their children. Clearly just a glance reveals the inner strength, intelligence, and socialist care he would give any offspring of The Great Unwashed, leaving more time for the adults in the family to wallow in their stupidity and helplessness while basking in His Crusaderness’s glow.

    After school programs at Public Schools has been an issue since the late 80s and early 90s. There were no options with pubic education except to put your kids on a bus to the YMCA.
    I chose a private school so that my children would have suitable before and after care since I had to work full time. Friends moved to PA and began after-school programs in the elementary schools…..
