We are holding teachers to be accountable. We certainly are holding students to be accountable…  There is even discussion out there to hold parents accountable for how their children behave in school.

So how does the Department of Education get off scot-free for it’s poor performance? How does $110 million dollars get spent in four years on consulting fees, with not one penny going to improvements that apply to students?  How do Charter Schools get unlimited freedom to destroy the educational ability of our inner city children, while public schools get bullied with punishment after punishment?  How with $110 million being spent on Common Core, have Delaware average scores been flat the last three years running?  How does $1.69 million get spent for Vision of (year changes daily) which is a private group that sits around drinking coffee and if the inclination hits, type a few things on their blog?

Why have we not had smaller class sizes?  Why have we not hired more teachers?  Why did we not put a million dollars per year per school to these schools 3 years ago, if they were a priority then?

Here is the answer…  This DOE, this administration doesn’t give one damn about inner city children.  But oh, how they do care for the giant charter school complex in the Bank of America building… That giant complex of charters cannot perform as well as public schools.  That giant complex will suck up state money with no results, except that dead property now will  then be collecting rent.  That giant complex cannot muster enough students to sign up to attend and now stands to be economically unprofitable, because, well,….they just can’t compete on the higher level as does public education when the two are pitted together on a level playing field…

Make no mistake.  The only reason these schools are failing and the only reason they are being picked apart with unjust, unfair, and unreasonable criticism, is for the financial gain of those owning that building that sits at the corner of King and 11 Street.  Those controlling education at our top, want these students to go there….

Therefore this entire charade was contrived to stock Wilmington with Charter Schools. Charter schools which cannot compete in intellectual capacity, and thereby dooming these public schools (the unchosen opponent of these charter schools) to sabotage, strictly in order to allow an even contest to ever begin…

What we see is the direct attempt to sabotage all the competition of the new Charter Complex prior to their opening,  in order to mess up public schools so much, so completely, so disparagingly that parents will look to charter as perhaps the better of the two evils…

That is all that is going on here.  Putting inner city children at risk for rent money… The Public needs to demand resignations, it needs to demand more funding, and it needs to demand that their legislators start listening to them, their constituents, and to stop trusting a gym teacher, sucked into Rodel, groomed to be a spokesperson for the high rollers of Wilmington, then thrust into the Department of Education to undertake the destruction of its public schools…

Children are of no consequence here… It is rent money driving this conversation.  Unless of course, you grab your legislator by the ear, and tell him/her in no uncertain terms he/she is to never listen to this administration again, unless it is first approved by you.

The top… needs to be held accountable… If it doesn’t work with the tiny few at the top…. how in the hell is accountability going to work with the masses on the bottom?
