Delaware sets up new teacher advisory council
DOVER, Del. (AP) — Gov. John Carney and state Delaware Education Secretary Susan Bunting have set up a new Teachers Advisory Council to gather feedback from educators on policy decisions.
Bunting invited two teachers from each of the state’s 19 school districts and six charter school educators to join the group. The council, announced Tuesday, will met bi-monthly to discuss a variety of issues affecting teachers.
Teachers participating on the new council were recommended by their superintendents or the Delaware Charter School Network for the voluntary role. Bunting has asked each to share his or her personal feelings rather than serve as a representative of a district or charter school’s position on an issue.
