I’ll keep them engaged. I designed a survey for them to collect feedback in Feb that they never sent to their members (http://tinyurl.com/tell-de-feedback). this is the doe saying the dsea is a poor partner and does not work with their members
The next TELL DE administration is scheduled for Feb 15th-Mar 15th. I think if he announces this survey now DSEA will get slaughtered by the vocal members. So we’ll need to see how to deal with this. Apparently, vocal members are something to be “dealt with”…amazing candor here.

Keep the dialogue open…this is good…
By the time we do the survey (proposed dates??), Priority will be less hot (& only in 6 schools) and comp reform is barely on the survey.  They are actively seeking to time the survey to skew the results!!!
Let’s discuss this…there’s a way for you to respond w/ data to keep him on-board, assuming that his argument is 100% genuine.  here, christopher ruszkowski is speaking ill of dsea and it’s executive jeff taschner, essentially calling him a liar.
If they want high participation, they’ll get it…  this appears to be Christopher ruszkowski suggesting the doe will willfully manipulate the survey, i.e. cheat.

Hi CR,
I spoke to Jeff and he said he’ll have his secretary find a few dates that work for the DSEA team for a TELL Delaware Advisory Committee meeting in early December.
However, he let me know that he’s not too sure if it’s a good idea to move forward with the study given his members’ concerns with Priority Schools, Comp Reform, etc right now. He thinks we’ll get low participation given the current climate.  this is the dsea trying to time the survey…why would it need to be timed if it’s a genuinely neutral effort to guage conditions? This shows that the results are sought for political purposes, not their actual content.
I told him that we should get the advisory committee together in December to discuss this as a group.
