    Jack Markell supports the “Relays” and the added costs of unproven alternative route programs because he is hellbent on spending taxpayer money on “resume” building non-educator programs such as TFA. Before any voters or organizations such as PTA and DSEA support any ambitions of pols who choose to move up the ladder you better consider their support for TFA and their acceptance of the “TEMBO” report as anything other than srap-paper worthy. Even “TEMBO” winning an RFP with no experience or credentials couldn’t obscure the multiple failings (and they tried like hell) of TFA and its ineffectiveness and harmful results in educating the neediest students. Always judge someone’s ambitions with a circumspect view of their agenda. If they prove time and again to hold the wrong view regarding something as important as public education combined with no apparent willingness to experience or learn important intimacies of the subject than please support another for the childrens’ sake.

    Representative John Kowalko
