On Oct. 11, 2018, the Courier Express published an article by Amy Cherry regarding the resignation of former DSEA President Mike Matthews and quoted DelawareCAN Executive Director Atnre Alleyne:

DelawareCAN Executive Director Atnre Alleyne issued a statement prior to Matthews’ resignation, saying he should be held “accountable” for his “demeaning and disturbing commentary.”

“Without mincing words, there is no place for the type of commentary found on DSEA President Mike Matthews’ old blog in our society, and especially in our education system. His remarks demean women, insult minorities and religious beliefs and joke about child molestation and gang rape. Whether these comments were made a decade ago or a day ago, they need to be met with strong repudiation and repercussions,” said the former Delaware Dept. of Education staffer. “It’s important we hold the highest bar for those who run our schools, who teach our children and who have a major impact on education policy decisions in our state.”
