YOU MUST RESIDE IN THE 27TH REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT.
Whether you register as a Republican or Democrat, your incumbent has been considerably weakened last year and this.
Here is what you will have behind you.
Financial resources of the Delaware PTA organization, consisting of parents and teachers from North Claymont to Southern Fenwick Island who deeply care for all children and want them to learn, not jump through meaningless hoops that curtail their development.
Backing from the DSEA teachers’ union, including financial resources and unlimited manpower…
Additional backing from regional teachers unions, such as the Red Clay and Christina local collections who would bend earth and water to replace Earl Jacques with someone who actually cares about kids.
National publicity and financial support from anti-Common Core affiliations sprouting up across America, including some well known like the BadAss Teachers association, and Diane Ravitch, who follow Delaware’s actions through its excellent blogs.
The power of hundreds of thousands of holy prayers rising upwards and a few financial resources from parents absolutely incensed over how the Smarter Balance Assessments manipulates their child to feel stupid when they aren’t, and who read widely of how almost every other states is running away from Common Core but yet see this incumbent using his leadership position solely to block each, all and every reform.
Support from all the significant editorialists and newscasters in this state, who will give you unlimited access to get your message out. That would include BOTH Rick Jensen and Al Mascitti on WDEL who would do so, because you are fighting a common enemy: corporate interference into public education. .
Here are your incumbent’s crimes……
Authored and pushed forward a charter bill (HB165) which removes $21 million of your dollars our of your school district and gives it to charters scattered all over the state.
Refused to allow the Opt Out Bill out of his committee though it had 52 of 62 (82%) of our General Assembly supporting it.
Called parents pussys because they were afraid of a “little” old test.
Consistently votes for those rights and financial concerns of international corporations over any concerns from people living on Cann Ave.. his own street.
Is personally responsible for the Smarter Balanced Assessment being given to your children.
But the main crime despite all these horrible issues, is that as chair of the House Educational Committee, he had multiple chances to act to return Delaware to a much better test, and did nothing….
The fact he does nothing in his leadership position, is the prime reason he needs to be kicked out. We need someone who does SOMETHING!
Voters in the 27th have lately been ill served. Especially if they have children. No other candidate anywhere in this state can garner this much support so early on. Not even our Representatives in Washington!
Please hear our calls.
Run, run, run….. Voters in the 27th are desperate for any, any other option, regardless of party affiliation… We will support Democrats who run against him. We will support Republicans who run against him…. We will support Independents who run against him..
If you are a mom or dad… please, please, please run. It is really not hard to do at all. Again, all the experts above can guide you through the process.
