Jim Palmer left the DOE… Peter Shulman leaving DOE in November….2 CHIEF OFFICERS! #netDE

Both held high ranking DOE positions created by RTTT grant money!  Uh Oh………who saw this crap coming……not looking to dig into every detail, but the patchwork quilt stitched together by DOE by way of Mr. Cruce’s explanation sure leaves me wondering if DE taxpayers and school staff and students are getting an effective return on our reform dollars….surely a few buck could be spared to pay CSD back for the DOE selection blunder over Bayard…..

  1. kilroysdelaware

    I wonder when Jack Markell is going to show courage and address the capacity-gap in the DEDOE Charter School Office? Markell is willing to closed bad charter schools but refuses to fire bad DEDOE managers.

  2. stop the insanity

    Neither candidate had 1 once of experience actually running a school. This administration stays away from any person who has had to make tough educational decisions or been saddled with the ever growing beauracracy that they love to create.
