DEDOE TLEU “Chief” Christopher Ruszkowski always brings the crazy.

First read this: http://www.wdde.org/63521-state-mixed-grades-teacher-training-report

Then check out the money quote:

The National Council on Teacher Quality’s (NCTQ) 2014 Teacher Prep Review evaluated six of the state’s elementary and secondary teacher-training programs. Four made the national rankings, with the University of Delaware’s undergrad elementary program rated 11th best in the country.

Chief officer of the Teacher and Leader Effective Units at the Department of Education Chris Ruszkowski says a stronger push needs to be made to keep soon-to-be teachers in that program in the First State.

“If that program is rated so high, and we accept the NCTQ’s rating that this program is a top 25 program in the country, why aren’t we doing more in Delaware to make sure that every single one of those graduates ends up teaching in Delaware public schools?” Ruszkowski said.

I don’t know Chris, isn’t that EXACTLY the charge of YOUR department? I thought your “genius” retention and “attraction” bonus program was simply not to be missed…

Oh well, back to the drawing board with our tax dollars. What a load of absolute shit: his program, and this quote.
