The Future of K-12 Education in Delaware

As Delaware families and students continue to navigate the challenges and upheavals of the educational landscape, the year 2024 stands as a pivotal moment for DelawareCAN’s commitment to fostering positive change. The past two years have underscored the resilience of our students and families, but they have also illuminated the deep-seated inequities ingrained within the Delaware education system. Building upon the lessons learned, DelawareCAN sets forth a bold agenda for 2024, aiming to address these longstanding disparities. The organization’s priorities encompass a range of transformative initiatives, from advocating for a constitutional amendment affirming every child’s right to a high-quality public education to championing transparency through the prominent display of school proficiency data on the state’s website. With a focus on financial literacy, education funding reform, and flexibility for charter schools, our vision is rooted in creating an inclusive, accessible, and forward-thinking educational system that empowers every family and student on their academic journey. DelawareCAN remains steadfast in its commitment to fostering an education system characterized by transparency, access, and inclusivity, where every family can confidently choose the educational path best suited for their children. As we set our sights on the year ahead, our priorities are clear: to champion transformative initiatives that address longstanding disparities, empower students with essential skills, and pave the way for a more equitable and prosperous future for all.
