The following was found by going to this website, searching for HB 165, then following up all leads…

What is going on behind the scenes of HB 165?  (One of the side effects of transparency is that there is so much hay covering up the damn needles)

The Delaware State Education Association DSEA has 9 lobbyists assigned to this bill.  So far zero dollars have changed hands.

The Rodel Foundation has two lobbyists assigned to this bill.  Again zero dollars have been reported…

Rhett Ruggerio Government Relations LLC has 6 lobbyists registered to this bill. Donald C. Mell III , James Nutter, Esq., Jordan Seemans, Kim Willson, and Rhett Ruggerio (Democratic National Convention 2008) ..  It appears (whether true or not) that zero dollars in 2013 have been spent on this bill.  (*Editors Note: The common perception is that lobbyists are all bad. Please check the above links to remove that perception permanently)

Cherry picking the Educational organizations, ….  Delaware Charter School Network (featuring James Taylor,Jr /News Journal) , Houghton Mifflin International Inc.(school testing corporation), Prestige Academy, Communities in Schools of Delaware (led by Jim Purcell who ran the Democratic Party in 2000 campaign);  Building Excellent Schools; Rodel, US English, Inc.  All have reported zero spending in 2013, Rodel has spent through the lobbying efforts of Melissa Hopkins, back in 2012,  a paltry $1434,45 on food and refreshments…

This is their side… Now… how much investment did YOU make towards saving Public Schools after having them around 100+ years of successfully creating adults?

Bitching and moaning is pointless.
