On November 9th, 2016, DelawareCAN Executive Director Atnre Alleyne published an op-ed in the News Journal.
DelawareCAN Executive Director Atnre Alleyne commented:
“If a school is bad for kids’ health, we want the issue investigated and someone to be held responsible, and we might even want the school closed. However, if a school is providing an anemic education for kids, we dispute whether we know for sure that the school is subpar, we make excuses for why kids are not learning and we find ways to delay any actions to improve quality. So if you are a kid in Delaware, or in most places in America, for that matter, whose potential and prospects are being diminished daily because of the poor education you are receiving, you will need to wait. Not days. Not months. Perhaps years. Probably decades. The problem is you cannot wait.”
