The Future of K-12 Education in Delaware
Delaware families and students have braved immense challenges and upheaval over the last two years. While these challenges have certainly highlighted the resilience of our students and families, they have also exposed the severe inequities that exist in the Delaware Education landscape. To that end, DelawareCAN will continue building toward an education system guided by transparency and access and where all families can choose the academic path that is right for them. In 2022 we will focus on erasing the decades of inequities that have turned education into a system of winners and losers by creating access for every student to the resources they need. We will break down the walls that have for too long existed between families and the information they need to make informed decisions. We will design programs that give all students access to the technology and services they need to compete in tomorrow’s world. We know that learning doesn’t happen in a vacuum; the future of American education is no longer confined to the walls and classrooms of a single school building. Our 2022 priorities capitalize on the lessons learned and our belief that by working together we can build a better system that works for every family.
