This weekend is the Delaware State Education Association’s annual Representative Assembly. Known simply as RA in many circles, this is the time when delegates from around the state come together to vote on bylaws updates, resolutions, and new business items. This will be my third year in attendance and it’s always been a great time.
This year, though, I’m doing something different. I’ve submitted the only two new business items to be worked this year on the floor of the RA. These are two issues about which I have a great amount of passion: school capacities and the Neighborhood Schools Act. I will go to Dover with the expectation that I will likely have to defend these new business items with reasoned arguments and respectful debates. I hope the delegates representing the school districts across the state will find my intentions to be pure and vote to adopt these new business items on Saturday.
I may share more information later, but I’ve been up since 4:30 and am quite tired!
