What is "Common Core"?  Do the standards make the grade?  As parents, we cant afford to saddle our kids with "common" standards, we need to know that they are held to the highest standards!  As parents, we deserve the right to decide where and how our kids are educated. No family should be denied that opportunity simply because of their economic status.  Forcing low income kids into failing public schools only perpetuates the achievement gaps we see today The panel of representatives from each of the sponsoring groups will speak about their experiences with current education reforms and how Delaware can embrace “education equality” and ensure that every family has a choice in educating their children and that every child has a chance to get the best education available. We’re happy to be partnering with well-respected representatives from the AFP Foundation, Caesar Rodney Institute and the Coalition for Delaware New School Choice and we believe that this will be an opportunity to show that education reform affects us all. The Delaware Education Reform Coalition is made up of parents and grandparents, business owners and taxpayers, students and teachers, who are coming together to demand that education reform be centered on parental rights, local control and lead to better results for our children.   Their focus on “education equality” has drawn attention from across political, religious, ethnic and geographic lines and has brought together individuals from Claymont to Delmar.
