RICHARD W. GATES III,
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
149th GENERAL ASSEMBLY
HOUSE BILL NO. 57
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 6 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANIES.
To obtain obedience to federal laws protecting national security, with the help of registered agents, this Bill will prevent the use of our Limited Liability Act by persons and nations identified by federal agencies as a threat to this country. The bill also seeks to prevent existing limited liability company owners who are on the lists of prohibited persons or governments, but may have formed a Delaware LLC already, from getting involved in industries in which the federal government has placed restrictions on certain investments. Requiring clearance from the Committee on Foreign Investments in the U.S. for their plans will enable the Secretary to waive this provision when it is received. Registered agents must be the parties to screen for identified threats because those with a contract with the Department of State enter applications on its computers on a regular basis. CFIUS seldom prevents investments, (two since 1989 to be precise) but it may ask for mitigation in some way to reduce the potential threat involved. This Act will not impact the ability of almost any applicant to easily form an LLC nor does it require any companies to disclose more information to the Secretary of State in its application for certification than is now required.
Trying to undo former Governor Jack Markell’s rape of Delaware public education without calling him out on the carpet is cowardly.
Governor Carney its time to end the specific interest charter school admission preferences. And you know what! It time to end all charter and magnet school admission preferences. Let charter school doors swing like traditional schools.
The time has come to fund traditional and charter school like votech schools, via of state legislators setting the local property tax rate. Perhaps this might end the political obstructionist.
As far as the condition of education in Wilmington Delaware, the failures are directly associated with a Choice school system designed to appease whites and was initially driven by the white status quo who wanted an end to force-busing. Nothing has been done to address the needs of poor Wilmington minorities re: the Choice transportation divide.
The Choice transportation divide is a Choice school process that provides no assistance to those parents without adequate personal transportation. Delaware’s current Choice school law requires parents to drive the children to a bus-stop within the Choice school or directly to the Choice school. Wilmington’s poor are forced to send their children to the failing city schools! Don’t come at me teach! No one is blaming teachers for the failures in the city schools.
There is no traditional public high school in the city limits of Wilmington Delaware and in Red Clay Consolidated School District case, there is no traditional middle school is the city. When confronted about this the usual reply is, we don’t want to create the appearance of segregated schools. Well hello McFly!! What about the Red Clay’s city elementary schools? Yea yea yea ! That where city parents choice their children. So all is well in Red Clay with de facto segregation and de facto failing schools.
Obviously it will be a cold day in hell when democratic control legislative hall will support a bill requiring legislators to fund all schools like votechs. What to do in the meant time?
In mean-time and to improve the lives of our at-risk Wilmington’s children we need changes in the Choice school and charter school cited earlier. Change in Choice school laws needs to be as followed; preferential Choice transportation for Wilmington’s children! Meaning Choice school buses come to the city and bus-stops in reasonable distance to students. Wilmington students get guaranteed first choice in suburban schools. Meaning before any student in suburban schools who choice to other schools within the suburbs and this will apply to their siblings. However, this plan would drive the sheets from out under the bed of a few suburban parents.
I could rant on and on however, the new found love for Wilmington’s poor students by our governor is nothing more than the same old same old. Then there are the righteous city brothers who proclaim they are civil rights leaders.
Yea ,yea Ted I remember the lesson, we need to build up not tear down! However, those proclaiming to be civil rights leaders need to spend less time breaking break with the white status quo who is at the driver seat of school reform. I continue to ask, why is it a bunch of rich white million and billionaire men dictating education reform for poor black children? The there are some Toms in the middle!
I love these so-called town hall education meetings where all questions must be written down and turned in to the facilitator of the meeting who in-turn cherry picks which questions or concern that they’ll reply to or ask for group engagement. We’ve allow the Rodel’s of the world to condition parents how to participate in these event to control the naysayers.
Governor Carney, if you care about the lives and social-well-being of the city of Wilmington’s children perhaps you help address the need for more boots on the grounds in fighting gun violence in Wilmington. As far as education!!!!! Clean house and distance yourself from Rodel and their satellites clones like the queen of charter schools! Parents and children are our guest! OMG bite me!
As for Wilmington parents! How long is long enough? You need to end the VT dumping ground in Wilmington schools. There are teachers not meeting goals in their suburban schools, in conflict with school administrators and some not suited for public education but their is no where for them to go. High needs schools need high performing seasoned teachers. Title 1 teachers are federally funded. The need to be taken out of the state funded unit count. You should have extra Reading teachers! And federal Title 1 funding should not be used for paying teachers to monitor recess and lunch. There are many sad events going on in America that question civil rights. However, if you can question civil rights in your child’s school! Turn of the TV! Stop the bitching and start pitching! You waste not time to snatch you child up up the street to avid getting killed by a speeding car but stand-by while those controlling public education kill your child’s chances for a quality education that doesn’t support social promotion. Your response to Governor Carney is, Walk the talk! Where’s the needed additional teachers in our city schools and why do you support funding for charter schools that exclude at-risk children with specific interest test.
To the Red Clay School District Board Members; as you address diversify in the district please take a hard look at district administration. When children and parents look up it would be nice to seen someone looking like them. Someone who came up the ranks in Red Clay not imported from outside. Relax rookie, go with the flow and don’t take any of this person and for God sake stop listening to the chef. And to princess! You are amazing! And to T , ( not you 1T) keep is spirit alive ! Find a way to sit at the table.
Johnny don’t go Jack on us!
Last year’s high school graduation class represented a generation of school children who endure three separate state assessment test. DSTP, DCAS and The Smarter Balance Assessment and the pilot-testing in-between. In Come Johnny be good Carney!
Folks we need to stop the madness ! 50 years of testing has all ended with the same results! Children of poverty particularly African-American males perform at the bottom!
I am thinking there is agenda to keep African-American down and goes hand and hand to keep a race of people down you have to keep their men down.
Sadly the civil rights movement is fragmented and too busy standing ground for those who knee during the national anthem and demanding removal of statues of the likes of Robert E lee. All have merit ! However, where is the community outrage and demands for change address the failure with in our public school system. No, I am not blaming teachers! I am blaming school district leadership, righteous so-called civil rights advocates looking for greenbacks for their involvement, clueless legislators and ass-wipe governors like Jack Markell.
We need to start putting more weight on classroom, school and district assessments aligned across the state. Use the NAPE test as means of comparison across the country/ Also weigh in SAT scores ! Also, we need high school exit exams and those scores factor in the schools performance. Yea yea Kilroy is full of shit!
Currently at the end of the day its nothing more than the dog chasing its tail! How many save public education plans have there been in the last 50 year? One thing for sure is, Rodel needs to be shown the door! If they want to prove themselves open a Rodel charter school for at-risk students! This way they can PROVE their theories ! But it will never happen! Because they can’t risk failure! Its much easier for them to point the finger of blame and filling the $$$ political pockets of the like of Jack Markell.
If Governor Carney wants to make real positive change he needs to boot the business round table from the education decision-making table and replace them with teachers, parents , school administrator (not district administrators) and yes a few at-risk students. We honestly need a student summit where students can weigh-in on public education reform from their view.
I don’t have the answers! Just suggestions! But I know this, far too long those with PhD’s overseeing public schools have been living in their own fart-bubbles!
