Rumor alert.

DSEA awarding their Friend of Education award in Delaware to Rep. Earl Jaques (D-Rodel, D-Delaware Charter School Network).

Will work to confirm, if true, it is literally the most disappointing selection in their history and speaks volumes to the DSEA executive board’s abject disconnect with education reality in our schools and with their own teachers.

If true, then the DSEA’a support of HB165 and SB51 can no longer be called a misinformed mistake, it’s a direct attack on public schools and local control in favor of charters and the siphoning of funding and jobs.It also means that they are officially  in cahoots with the GAs most ardent and newest charter supporter/defender who apparently now shuns district schools: Earl Jaques.
