The Governor Markell FOIA Release: Rodel, Herdman, RTTT, Common Core, and guess who’s coming to town…

KIPP IS COMING KIPP IS COMING!

Exceptional Delaware 2017

For those who may not be aware, I requested a Freedom of Information Act request from Delaware Governor Jack Markell’s office on December 3rd, 2014.  I received it today, January 12th, 2015.  My request was for all emails between Markell and the following individuals: US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Michelle Rhee, Joel Klein (of Amplify) and Paul Herdman of The Rodel Foundation of Delaware.

Some things are obvious from this FOIA release.  Governor Jack Markell does not communicate big education matters via email.  At least not his official state email.  For a Governor that pushes education so much, you would think there would be more communication with his partner on the Education Blueprint.  Some questions that are answered in this:

1) How did Paul Herdman get into Rodel?

2) What charter chain may be filing a charter application this month and how could this possibly have something to do…

  1. Elizabeth

    You’re four days without a post…
    So, you’re either AWOL with Murphy or up to something…

    What’s it gonna be?

  2. I sure hope the CSD BOARD is rethinking this current MOU. It is not good for the District !! I am proud of how strong they have been through this entire process, now is not the time to get weak kneed. It gives up on who runs the schools. Creating a selection process that could include re-interviewing by staff is a slap in the face. The “PLAN” is mentioned with no details. Charging zero dollars to use our facilities, indicates a takeover is planned.
    Please do not trust Murphy’s minions !! They are owned by charter organizations from out of state !!
