Charles Potter has just introduced an amendment to SB51 striking the 3.0 average entry requirement. He says it discriminates against a black child who struggled hard though High School to get a 2.99… The toady for the administration is arguing that there is a clause allowing 10% of those not to be above target. He could slid in under that… Potter’s response is that what if that child was on the cusp, and after 10% were in, he was next and would be denied.
The administration is saying that this bill is to raise standards and if you don’t raise standards what’s the point of having this bill.
Potter is dancing around the topic, but is essentually saying this is a bad bill and needs to be voted down if it doesn’t have this amendment, and finally, finally, debate is getting out on the floor, The administration’s toadies are panicked… They’re wearing the stone expression face..
Now points we made are poking holes in the bill, but the speaker is reigning discussion to the amendment….
Any discussion of this bill is good…
Fact is, Potter is correct. This bill certainly does discriminate against wanna be teachers who studied their whole career, and with so many strikes against them, ARE proud of their 2.5 record… AND THEY SHOULD BE…

Just before someone expires there is a stir, a gasp, a movement, and for one second it looks like all is well, they are coming back to life, and then the eyes just stop. The spirit has moved on.
Anyone attending the Civic League for New Castle County Debate on Gun Control, as well as the General Assembly hearings in Dover this and last week, got a visual of that same scenario …
The meeting took place Tuesday, March 19, at the County building just off the road to the landfill…
The meeting room was packed with Andy Griffiths, Barney Fifes, and Aunt Bee’s numbering close to 170. No Opeys. One person represented Sussex County. One person represented Kent, and the preponderance represented New Castle County.
It had the feel of a coming out party. The participants were giddy to see so many others there just like them. Each felt the entire universe’s lifeforce passed through them and them alone, and none had qualms shouting down speakers who just were not as enlightened as them. Many of the 9-12 Patriots were in attendance, foregoing their required date with a treadmill just to make the meeting. Quite a few over 70 years in age, both men and women, actually shaved for the occasion.
Probably it would be safe to say, roughly 4% of the attendees supported the Governor’s Plan on Gun Control. The rest all showed up to fight oligarchical tyranny. that multi-headed hydra capable of shape-shifting at a moments notice. It would be safe to say, just two years ago, that hydra would have been in the form of a horrendous Hawaiian Birth Certificate, or the (spooky music here) lack of one.
Anthony N. Delcollo, Esq., President, Delaware Association of Second Amendment Lawyers (guess which side he was on) felt the power of the room and tried to channel himself into the Great Wonderful Oz. Although he was capable of mesmerizing his captive audience who hooted and hollered at his unsupported platitudes, outside that small room the Great Oz would no doubt have as much critical acclaim as the current movie does bearing the same name.
Mark Blake, Hockessin Civic Leader and NRA lifetime member, enjoyed having a room that supports him, (he is usually on the other side regarding Land Use). Seriously. There were no challenges to numerous misstatements. One could say anything in support of unlimited use of unlimited weaponry aimed at unlimited people and receive a standing ovation. He did repeatedly. Other than the luminary idea of putting locks on school room doors, nothing new to the argument was provided. It was the “same ole”, “same ole” platitude that since criminals don’t obey laws anyway, so … what’s the point of even having law? ….. Applied to guns, that was crux of the argument.
Poor Andrew Lippstone, Esq., Governor Markell’s Chief Legal Counsel…. Two hundred and thirty five years ago, he would have been picked up, dropped and rolled in a bed of tar, and covered with half the chicken feathers of Sussex County. One has to admire the courage to even attempt to engage against a force so righteous they were deaf to any reasoning. To them however, he provided the entertainment giving an excuse for every member to show their extensive knowledge of every individual part of every firearm in the cannon of military weaponry… Being so overwhelmed was obviously discomforting to him; hoping of course 235 years of the “right to free speech” would prevail among people wishing they lived inside a piece of parchment written 235 years ago.
Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence Representative (Nancy will supply me with the name) announced the results of a new poll on gun violence. OVER 50% OF SUSSEX COUNTY WANTS ALL GUNS REGISTERED! NEAR 60% OF KENT COUNTY WANTS ALL GUNS REGISTERED. OVER 90% OF NEW CASTLE COUNTY WANTS ALL GUNS REGISTERED!… or were in support of some type of background checks with no exceptions…
This data was attacked. The sample size was too small it was said; questioned was the 600 people sample size for the entire state of Delaware? Forget that national polls are also decided on the same number polled, there were 200 people there in that room and almost 100% were in favor of no regulation on any weapon ever…. That poll had to be a lie, a disingenuous trick. a surreptitious plot to steal the truth away from the American people. Someone was lying. It was obvious that 100% of the people support open warfare with military weapons anywhere at anytime… because… well, they said… look around….
In their enthusiasm at not being a shunted minority, their exuberance is forgivable. But one hoped, that someone, just one person, would point out to them, that… you know? There were other people living in Delaware too, who weren’t in that room…
You know? They probably didn’t get that email that told them they were about to lose their prized possessions and to show up in force to demand they keep things the status quo. They probably just got home and had to cook dinner or eat dinner with the kids, and then do homework, put them to bed, and then get ready for the grind tomorrow. You know, after a rough day, there was probably something better they needed to do than find a building just off the road to the landfill, and park their car in a crowded lot, and freeze their butts off walking through the labyrinth of that parking lot and finding the entrance to the main steps of that building… I would offer that perhaps drinking wine would have been a better option. You know?
There was not one black person in the room.
This group was very representative of Delaware’s entire population.
It brings to mind this… I wonder if this “debate” had been scheduled say, in the auditorium of Bancroft School, just off Pine Street, or in the Auditorium of Pulaski School, up on the hill off Rt 4, or in the Kingswood Community Center in Northeast Wilmington, or in the Boys and Girls Club off Union Street, or in the Salvation Army Building between Shipley and Orange Streets, if the NRA would have been so overwhelmingly represented. If those 80 year old white folks would be willing to park on the street, walk the one or two blocks on inter city sidewalks to share their view with those living within walking distance, who hear the pop, pop, pop almost on a daily basis, and it is not at a shooting range…. I wonder if these brave, pompous, arrogant, white haired, Viagra driven septuagenarians would be willing to sit next to a young muscularly built black man who has probably had more experience fighting humans with his bare hands, that that old white man has ever fired his assault rifle. I wonder if these pompous protagonists feel strong enough, virile enough to weather the hurt soul of a black woman who lost their child solely because the NRA has purposefully made guns so easily available and has interceded to discourage law enforcement every step of the way in trying to preserve the peace… Do you really think these old men would show up in the inner city to say, “guns don’t kill people! We already have laws. We need to lock up criminals or people who sort of look like criminal, you know, “those people”, and throw away the key. We don’t need any more law and order!!!”
Tell me. Do you think they would be willing to do that? if the location were made in say a …. more American atmosphere?
The point being made here for all to listen, is that America is bigger than the NRA.. Tailoring meetings and demonstrations just so they can play their strong suit, is not moving America in the direction it needs to go, towards civilization. If all you have is 200 people, getting those 200 people to show up an one spot, is easy. If the room only holds 200 people, it is easy to bluster you have 100% of support in your favor… You say just look around.
On similar grounds, one could say that 100% of people support Miss America Beauty Pageants. Or 100% people support Model Train Collecting. Or 100% of the people prefer to look at old and new postage stamps. Or that 100% of the people want to “flip That House.” Or that 100% of the people prefer to listen to classical music….. “Just look around…” (All good causes by the way….)
I think those analogies properly put the overwhelming support shown by those who want no law on guns, at meetings they can pack, into their proper perspective….
Polls show that close to 9 out of 10 Americans are sick of the NRA making their lives unsafe and want Government to get off their ass and finally do something about it. 9 out of 10 people, especially including those “normal” Americans who own firearms.
I venture that the fact that as the NRA and the Tea Party get crazier and crazier each time they realize no one is listening, is justification enough that they themselves,… know it is true…
Although the year is barely out, we do have our first nomination for the spot to be announced in December 2013. With the Kinder Morgan Deal now on hold semi-permanently, even they are pointing to our hero of the year as the man most responsible for allowing the port to remain state owned….
I can say it was Julius Cephas who was behind almost every move to combat the loss of good jobs at our port. He is being pointed out as the villain by the capitalists at Kinder Morgan. In Delaware’s eyes, that elevates his hero’s stature even more…
In truth, he is no villain and knowing him, he will probably shun the acclimations being made by us common folk as being our hero. In his eyes, he was just doing what needed to be done because no one else was there at that very moment to do it, and as that task swelled, it took a lot out of him….
Capitalists always need a villian. But it was the “truth” which actually is what killed this deal. Kinder Morgan WAS going to cut back on jobs, and their change of heart and blaming Julius instead of others, points exactly to the core of their problem with our port… …
People in Texas, do not understand unions. They simply can’t fathom or understand how there can be an actual law that lets people strike and shut you down, whenever you try to pay them less.. In their eyes, you work for what they want to give you and if it is too little, ..humph. go elsewhere….
The second culprit (after the “truth”), was our office of economic development. We gave Kinder Morgan too many “eager” signals that set us up as being seen as an easy pick. They truly thought they could waltz in, pick up a top notch East Coast Port for a song, and we would eagerly give it up… Again, that was because everything was done in secret. Had a meeting been forthcoming in the very beginning, Kinder Morgan might have moved on earlier when it became readily apparent, that southern Texas practices do not bode well in the Northeast…
Of course, being a corporation, they will blame the whistle blower. (Ironic since the whistle blower of Enron works for them).. Of course. It is not like they find anything immoral in taking a state asset for a song, in firing those skilled dock workers, and replace them with some Spanish speaking Texans who never even heard of a union….
And Julius did blow that whistle. . Like Rose on the Titanic, he took the whistle off of Jack (pun intended), and blew softly at first, then harder, and harder. Gradually the sound registered on others ears….
Without Julius, Bob Marshall would not have pushed through Senate Bill 3. Without Julius, most of the links showing up in everyone’s blog, would have not been found. Without Julius, the case for protecting workers would not have even made the rounds of the Norman Oliver show….
There were many helpers. Bob Marshall, Nancy Willing, Norman Oliver, Norinda, Helene Keeley, Al Mascitti, Liz Allen, John Kowalko, and (an other blogger too shy to be mentioned here). When one looks back through all of them one sees from everywhere, there in the center of the universe, stands a normal human being just like us, known to most … as Julius.
There will come a time when a better deal will arrive. Could even be this year. There will come a time when a suitor who does care about Delaware, who does care about unions, about human beings, about those businesses on the outside, and who will want to upgrade the port for everyone’s interest, not just their own… And that suitor in this day and age, could even come from abroad. Germany is very committed to union labor, to the environment, to being a good neighbor…. There are a great many possibilities out there that are immeasurable…. We definitely dodged a Texas bullet with this one….
When that suitor arrives… Julius’s stature will be set in cement…. For he did nothing really Herculean, except argue the truth… He didn’t lie. He didn’t connive, He didn’t threaten….
That was done by our office of economic development. Instead and unlike them, Julius told the truth. He told the truth to anyone who would listen. He told the truth enough, so many “did” listen….
And that is why, he deserves this nomination as Delaware’s Man of the Year. I know it is early into 2013, but great things just do not wait!!….
You will hear smears that Julius tubed the deal… I saw the letter and it is already out on WDEL and the Delawareonline’s News Journal… But as an impartial blogger, I can tell you exactly what killed this deal.
It was “the truth”. The truth of what this deal would cost us Delawareans….. is what turned the tide and caused the outcry that rose up against it….
If Kinder Morgan really wanted this deal, they could have easily said… “we are expanding and putting 5 new berths out into the river. We are buying the port for the bargain price of $5 billion. We need those businesses outside the fence because the jobs we get, will soon be too big, we can’t do it ourselves. We will keep the union just as it is; Wilmington needs good jobs and we are going to do our part…. We are also going to contribute into an emergency fund to be used for any spill or environmental accident that takes place under our tenure….
Kinder Morgan could have done any of those things, … and didn’t…. The blame doesn’t lie with Julius after all…. Especially when you consider the following…
This Economic Council erred on Fisker Automotive. Then it erred on Bloom Energy. Then it tried to Kinder Morgan us out of our port….. Someone rushed in with a save to make sure that last one didn’t happen.
That person is now hereby nominated for Delaware’s Person of the Year…….
This is old news actually. It closed the 25th of February after being open for a month. Originally it was to be open for two weeks, then with a lack of participation, was extended for two weeks more.
To understand education in Delaware you need to see the results here….
Originally the anticipated rate was 50%. Some of us encouraged more to participate, in order to get a fuller picture of what problems were being faced with the corporatization of Delaware’s school system. Otherwise known as the “Pay To Learn Plan”…(PTLP)..
6025 out of 10731 educators completed the survey. That is over the target by 10 percent.
There was another contingent of educators that was encouraging teachers not to take the test. It was a trust issue, and to be valid, if the results were changed from negative, and switched over to that of supporting by those now with access to the raw data, a favorable outlook could then be presented without it really being true. Having a majority appear to sign on to something done in secret, and no one really knows if the data is accurate, could be damaging to our students if the data were not trustworthy and true…
Granted, this manipulation is easily done in a digital age…
However, some of us realized that if the concerns of our teachers were not met, our children were doomed. We understood that the test could be manipulated to show wrong data. There existed this option where if the data was being manipulated, we were damned if we did, and damned if we didn’t.
Tennessee is undergoing terrible times right now. They rushed into the RTTT with Republican Legislatures and a Republican Governor, and immediately unions were dissolved. Although now its structure is in place with testing out the gazoo, they are in dire straits to fill teaching positions that are rapidly being vacated by disillusioned educators heading out for other states.
Tennessee’s children will now suffer worse with RTTT than had their state not opted to Race To The Top.
That is why, only a true representation of teacher’s views toward the handling of the imposition of Common Core, (this race to scrap our entire current public educational system and instituting a brand new corporate one), could lead us away from Tennessee’s fate.
It was the only defense against having Tennessee’s trauma inflicted upon us.
If they choose to manipulate the data, our children are doomed as well. If they don’t, and our surveys are taken to heart, and teachers have a role at the table, and the administrators listen to them for once, our children will probably get the best possible education available.
However not filling the survey out as a protest, I believe, left an avenue that not taken, could never bring the possibility of positive results….
Anyways, …. here are just some of the participation rates…
Red Clay 56.50%
Cape Henlopen 40.00%
Every parent should go on site, click on their district and it expands so they can get a read-out of each and every school. I would then encourage you to have a dialogue with their teacher to find out in depth why they chose to go the way they did. Remember, whether a teacher went for it or against, it as with the child’s welfare first at heart… The one thing that is not at issue is every teacher’s care and concern for every child… What is important is that you, the parent, has a buy-in to this new educational system by sharing your concerns with your child’s teacher..
There is no good or bad here; there is only progress, … and that is something all will agree is necessary to have…
In today’s News Journal there is notice that Pam Scott had influence upon the letter announcing the compromise Chris Coons and Stoltz Reality worked out regarding the Barley Mill Plaza.
I just want to point out that this is not odd. I do it all the time. When an agreement is going to be made public, it is common practice to have the attorney’s on both sides trouble shoot it, play devil’s advocate, fling it against the wall to see if anything loose will fall out.
There is nothing more embarrassing than rolling out a plan whose flaw is immediately picked out by the public, and the whole plan has to then be rolled up and fixed.
This is why we send drafts back and forth to each other and ask for their approval, and if they choose to make changes they send it back to us for our approval.
This is a standard protocol in business and is nothing shady at all. Trying to make it into something sinister and heinous won’t stand. It is what we all do. It is how things work.
Todays editorial in the News Journal authored by Mr. Sweeney is clogged with errors…
Mr. Sweeney tries to deflect our focus away from the fact that this port issue is about less income coming into Wilmington. Less income is our concern. That is the concern for the City of Wilmington; that is the concern for the government of New Castle County… For you see, both their revenue comes from the level of prosperity bestowed upon its inhabitants. As discussed below, the Kinder Morgan deal will siphon $5 million out of the economy of our city and send it electronically to Houston Texas, their main office…
To deflect us from the prime argument against the Kinder Morgan takeover of the port, Mr. Sweeney offers the argument that we should all be concerned about the “cost of shipping.” In other words what people in Bentonville, Arkansas will pay for their goods, is more important than the economies of Wilmington and New Castle County.
The amount of savings will not amount to $5 million just in the New Castle County area. The loss of union wages WILL cost that amount, right here. Each year!
Mr. Sweeney uses debunked data to back his assertions.
First of all, products brought into Norfolk/Portsmouth, will always be cheaper than products brought into Wilmington, whether or not the state or Kinder Morgan takes over. The port of Wilmington is competitive only on fruit and produce. Shipping into Wilmington does save money if one is buying produce. What Mr. Sweeney fails to realize is that supply and demand have more of a impetus upon the price of a banana, than one micro-cent difference in the cost of shipping.
Produce is perishable. As it goes bad, its price goes WAY down. Towards the holiday season, demand causes its price to jump way up…. Wilmington and Port Labor do a great job at giving the East Coast the cheapest imported produce available.
Sweeney’s argument fails when applied to produce simply for the fact that if the price asked is low, you can’t sit on inventory until it goes up again. You sell it or throw it away. The cost of shipping is an irrelevant item.
Secondly. Mr Sweeney states “that each mile of bad road, each worn out berth in a port adds an extra cost to the shipping of goods…” Not exactly true. A truck full of bananas drives out the same driveway whether or not it has potholes. A ship berths and unloads, whether or not it has new or old padding to protect it. Which is the reason that they are not replaced.. What Mr. Sweeney should have said and would have been correct, … “was that the improvement or upgrades of roads and ports, .. adds to the shipping costs.” For it is when we spend, and spread that cost over a time period, is when we need to pay for those improvements. Not doing anything, actually keeps prices low.
This shoots Mr. Sweeney’s argument full of holes. The cost of shipping will go up… THE COST OF SHIPPING WILL GO UP… no matter who invests in the port. Whether it is Kinder Morgan, the State of Delaware, or some white knight who rides in to save the port. The cost of shipping goes up WHEN improvements are made. Period.
(It is no different from when you get a loan to improve your house, the total amount of your household going to both loan payments is now more…. If you didn’t fix up your house, you would still be paying the same single loan payment instead of now paying two….)
Obviously Mr. Sweeney is not informed of recent events. He is looking off the original prospectus; not the most current one with updates.
- The port will not be expanded into the Delaware River.
- Big Chinese ships coming through the new Panama Canal will not fit past Lewes. They need 50 feet. We are dredging 45. So unless we dredge the entire bay … again, these ships are not part of the bargain. They will have to go elsewhere because of the short-sightedness of those who pushed the dredging process.
If Delaware Bay were as deep as Norfolk, I would share the enthusiasm.
Delaware must continue being the number one port for the little ships that dock at remote third world banana ports then race up to Wilmington, Delaware to unload their cargo. Why? Because our dock hands are the best. We can get these little ships in and out faster than any other port up and down the East Coast. Furthermore, in less than one mile, freshly loaded trucks are cruising 495 at maximum speed towards their destination….
I don’t mean to beat up on Mr. Sweeney too bad. His argument would have had more credibility even one month ago. However, as each new piece of data drips in, it makes the Kinder Morgan Plan appear to be less and less of a good match between it, and the folks here in New Castle County.
Tom Gordan has a chance to show what he is made of. If he comes down against Abbot’s developer, Frank Acierno, we will know he is the real thing back in action supporting the wills of residents over the wills of Pam Scott’s friends Briefly here is the deal. On one hand you have:
- Developed floodplains.
- Horrendous traffic intersections.
- Change in the actual character of the Community
- Shopping Center across from church and school
On the other hand:
- More money for Frank Aceirno and Rich Abbot.
You know who is for it; here is a list of those who are against it….
- City of Newark; City Government
- Holy Angels School and Church
- McDonalds Main Street Newark
- State Rep. Mike Ramone
- State Rep. Paul Baumbach
- State Rep. John Kowalko
- State Rep. Edward S. Osienski
- State Rep. Joe Miro
- State Sen. David Sokola
- Windy Hills Community Association
- Every single human being whose commute takes them through Possum Park intersection.
This is a healthy reminder as to why we have democratic government. The tract includes some nice forests – a 60 acred piece that is
almost totally wooded and has WCC frontage and 2 blue line streams with
forested buffers. All in all some great habitat.
The perpetrators are attempting to sneak through a rezoning of a piece of property considered green, consisting of protected resources – eg. Critical Natural Area, Creek, Stream, Floodplain, Wetlands, Steep Slopes, and Mature Forest and have it rezoned into Regional Commercial. Once that rezoning is complete, anything can be done to that property at any point into the future, no matter what the current assurances by the developers are. With this month’s rezoning if it takes place, in 10 years, with a more favorable administration, a hot, drippy sex club could be built on that property. Who knows!
However, a wall of bipartisanship has swelled up against this project. Every one, Democrat, Republican, Independent thinks it is a bad idea….. This again is the classic tale of people versus big money.
We know who should win; but we don’t yet know who will win….
Call Tom Gordan and let him know. We had an election. Developers don’t run New Castle County any more.
Could we have saved one student? Two? Maybe a whole class? Maybe all 16,807 could have had some educational benefit from this total, which I should point out, we only have of the fiscal state funding so far…..
Here exactly is why Charter Schools fail…
They spend that total on just barely offering the barest minimum of educational opportunities….
Doubling the above total and spending it within the Christiana school district would provided all current 16,807 students, EVERY SINGLE ONE, with an additional $152.00 per child to spend upon their education…..
This is money spent on extra’s. On those things that make students learn. On salaries, On supplies. The basics are already cared for… so this incremental amount goes straight to augmenting each student’s ability to learn…..
When you pursue a charter school philosophy, you are stealing $152,00 from every single child from elementary up to twelfth grade, and squandering it upon items like…. A-1 Sanatation, ADT Security Systems, and half a million dollars to 4048 Associates…..
How do those expenses help our children learn, especially when those expense are being paid for over the Christiana District already? By pursuing the misguided policy of funding Charter Schools, we are paying for two trash bills, two electric bills, one extra lease payment to private individuals, two electronic security services…..
And with every new Charter School opened, given only a 17% chance of survival, meaning a failure rate on the investment of 83% of our wasted tax dollars, more and more is bled from that fund that actually does what it is supposed to do…. teach our kids and make them want to learn.
Charter Schools can go private. That is fine. But public money is not well spent to help out one’s buddies owning 4048 Associates……
The Delaware Department of Education has launched an anonymous online survey called “TELL Delaware,” using Race to the Top money.
Educators have until February 15th to take the survey with the results being finalized in March. The state is seeking a 50-percent response rate at each school to get the best data.
I entreat all educators. This is important. This is the opportunity to get your statements out there. I believe 50% is an gross underestimate. I would encourage every teacher to strive for a 100% compliance among your peers. Yes, teachers, you may have to ride your fellow teachers. Every teacher should make it a personal goal, that every teacher they know, turns in their online survey…..
Across this nation education is racing forward. Giant sums of private investment are becoming available to help education. This has never happened on this scale in your lifetimes. The problem is that those who best know their children, up to now, have been shut out.
Research has finally caught up. It is now apparent that national testing measures nothing more than whether or not a person passed a test. The knowledge normally and previously required to score well on such tests, are missing… We are training nothing more than how to pass a test.
Teachers teach because it is their love. Each of you has not only an opportunity to express your beliefs, but an obligation….
You need to be a part of how Delaware education goes forward…. You NEED to be a part….
Here is how you should approach it. Remember 100% response rate!
Read the online survey questions.
Think about it for a while.
Isolate your top idea on how to better get through to your kids.
Do the survey and send.
I do want to caution you that the less wordy you are on your survey, the less heart your pour into the sidelines, and bylines, the better your survey will be.
Surveys are data collectors. There may be hundreds of ideas, many of them the same. The survey will isolate the top three… There is a good chance that out of all the Delaware teachers taking the survey (remember the 100% return rate) those concerns rising to the top, will be the best one. After all, if teachers the state-over have many of the same concerns, then addressing those concerns can only help children. Correct?
Now just in case this is a ploy or trick, I would recommend that notification be sent to the DSEA so we have two counts of the number of surveys sent. If the Department were to say their pool was 1100 and the DSEA had 4400 who acknowledged filling out the survey, we would instantly know cherry picking of the results was taking place to skew the results.
I caution the Department of Education. The idea of this survey is to find a way where teaching and corporate funding can co-exist in a way that helps education… In a way that improves learning. If you fudge your figures and the children continue to show no improvement, then money is wasted for no good…
The point is to find a way where teachers and investment can focus their resources on their children, and not quibble back and forth in stalemate. We need to focus on the children.
I have my own theories but they don’t belong here. 8,000 Teachers across this state have an average of 8 years of teaching. That is an average 64,000 years of experience…. Hmmm if we went back in time, it would be 62,000 BC, about the time mankind went down to one woman and built back up to what it is now…. All that teaching experience is now being tapped to combine with corporate money and invested in our schools.
If you care about teaching even the slightest, this is an opportunity not to be missed…. It is the chance of a lifetime to make a real difference…. If Delaware succeeds, then every child across America will one day get the full benefit.
