This link goes to a great article about testing and race in Delaware. The graphs say it all! And the comments are perfect!
I have been working as a summer fellow for the past 5 weeks at DDOE. Every day I enter the office with four cubicles, one being mine and there she is. The Hula Girl on the window sill doing her hula thing on sunny days.
Who is the hula girl? And how did she end up in a 3rd floor window at DDOE?
Delaware is giving the public a chance to review current regulations. I have seen the book of current Delaware regulations and it is HUGE! An excellent example of too much regulation. Now, we the people, can have a say if regulations are deleted, continued, or changed. Participate in the process!

I found the below handout of questions to ask politicians running for office. Many times you really do not know their opinion of the arts. Now you can found out.
The Delaware Arts Alliance is sponsoring a “Meet and Greet” with upcoming candidates for Governor, Lt. Governor, and others running for election in Delaware.
It’s a family event with food and drinks. Come out, support the arts, and get information for Election Day 2016!
We do need an art movement. A way to show everyone what America can be. Seeing is believing!
Check out the below article about the RNC. The arts empowers us all!

History is an amazing subject. I wish our society know more about our history, maybe it would not repeat itself so much…
Well, I was searching online for resources for Professional Learning, part of my DDOE Fellowship work, and I stubbled onto the Daughters of the American Revolution website. My dad mentioned that I was a daughter of the American Revolution when I was younger. I never really thought about it until today. So, I came home and asked my dad. (I am building a house so my family is living with my parents.) He gave me a book that a relative was writing about our family. I was amazed!
The first Moser found through research was in the 1400’s in Switzerland. 1400’s… That is a long family tree!
Michael Moser came to the new world in the late 1700’s on the ship James Goodin and it landed in Philly.
There is a town in PA named after my family, Mosserville.
And yes, I am a daughter of the American Revolution. I found the enlisting paper Michael Moser filled out to become part of the German Battlion in the American Army. It is part of the National Archives Collection.
I have some papers that I need to fill out and send to Arden Moser, the man writing this book, about our family. My dad has had them a year and never did anything with them.
Just imagine the historical events my family has seen over the last 550 years! The people we have touched. The lives we have changed. In America, my family is from PA and most of them were farmers and owned a lot of land.
This is history. My history. Our history. I wish more Americans knew more about our American history.
Take a look at link below. Good bye core subjects, hello educating the whole child, which should have always been the focus. The Arts are essential to our 21st century society.
