Failing Schools Enabled By Gov. Wolf

By Leo Knepper Failing Schools Enabled By Gov. Wolf

“…I’m in this spot where I have to call the school that failed my kids and re-enroll them…I’m heartbroken over this.”

That quote comes from Amy Millar via a Philadelphia Inquirer story on the State Education Department’s recent action to “clarify” what services cyber-charter schools can offer. According to the article, two of Ms. Millar’s children have special education needs. However, her children have flourished at the Education Plus Academy Cyber Charter School (Ed Plus).

What did Ed Plus do to bring the wrath of the state education bureaucracy down on their heads? They offered their students services like art, gym, and “face-to-face” learning opportunities at their learning centers. In other words, they looked at the needs of their students and provided for them. The State Department of Education evidently frowns on the hybrid model used by Ed Plus. As a result parents like Ms. Millard will be forced to send their children back to schools that were failing to meet their needs in the first place.

Although the Governor purports to want “quality” education for all. His administration’s actions in this and other cases clearly illustrate that is not entirely accurate. The Governor’s interest is in making sure that his patrons at the teachers’ union are happy and that there is as little competition as possible in the public education sphere.

If the Wolf administration was interested in ensuring every child received a quality education, they would be applauding Ed Plus. Furthermore, they would be examining what that school is doing differently and seeing how it might be replicated in other schools. The Department of Education should be looking at how they could make it easier for others schools to provide the same education experience. Instead, they seem more interested in erecting barriers to a quality education.

Sweet Smoked Pork

Sweet Smoked Pork
Sweet smoked pork before the cooking. You can the save leftover rub for months.

Chief Bill Sr recently oversaw a summer smoke-out featuring pork and chicken.

The chicken was an experiment and, while delightfully cooked, the seasoning will be discarded for this particular meat the next time it is placed in the Brinkmann.

The pork, a picnic acquired for 99 cents a pound at PriceRite in Primos,  was delicious.

The same rub was used for both. As noted magic for pork, not so much for chicken.

The rub is called Memphis Dust and Chef Bill will not take credit for it. He says it all belongs to Meathead. Here is Meathead’s Memphis Dust Rub:
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup Morton’s kosher salt
1/4 cup garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons ground ginger powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons rosemary powder

Regarding the smoking itself, make sure you have a son who can keep the reservoir dish filled with hot water and the charcoal dish filled with charcoal. It is an all day affair.
