It was wonderful to speak with members of the NCC Chamber of Commerce at their annual dinner last night. Based on our unemployment rate sinking below 5%, we know progress is being made. We also know there is more work to be done, and investing in our kids, our infrastructure, and in bringing businesses to Delaware is the way to do it.

Many amazing schools and programs across the state are offering students diverse and innovative opportunities to meet their individual needs. However, not all of our students have access to the programs of their choice. Many schools are oversubscribed and should be expanded or replicated. At the same time, we don’t want our districts to start new programs, and we don’t want to open new charter and magnet schools, if families aren’t asking for what they offer. This effort will ensure that state and district plans are designed to best meet individual students’ needs and spark their interests.

More schools with vocational training so that by the time students leave the school, they should be able to support them selves and their families as well which will also help them to pursue higher studies.

Our educators, our students, and their parents all deserve the benefits of effective assessments that show when students are excelling and when they need extra. At the same time, tests that don't add meaningfully to the learning process mean less time for students to receive the instruction and support they need. We are committed to finding the right balance, and this initiative is an important part of that.

Lucky to have good students. Free education to girl child at all levels keeping in view the vulnerability and necessity arising out of economic compulsions girls face

The Climate Framework for Delaware proposes a wide range of actions to protect public health and safety, strengthen the state’s facilities and infrastructure, and improve our capacity to deliver services to Delawareans in a changing climate. I encourage you to review the recommendations and offer your input and ideas. By working together, we can make Delaware more resilient to climate impacts, protecting our people, places and natural resources, and leaving the world better than we found it. And that will keep Delaware moving forward.

A serious effort and the need of hour.

In "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut," Dr. Seuss wrote, “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Today, the First Lady and I had the pleasure of reading with students from William Henry Middle School for Read Across America Day. It’s clear after spending some time with the students, they’re going great places.

Happy to sign HB 16 earlier today which allows restaurants with seating for at least 12 people to apply for a liquor license. The bill levels the playing field for small restaurant owners and gives them a chance to compete.

Amazing schools and programs across the state are offering diverse and innovative opportunities to meet individual needs, whether it’s the science and math focus at Conrad Schools of Science, the college prep courses at Mount Pleasant, the programs to serve high-need students at EastSide Charter, or the robust career and technical training at career and tech-ed schools in each county. By ensuring all children have access to the right education programs, we’ll give them the best chance to graduate ready for college or a career and we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.

The fact that assessments play an important role in supporting our students means we must invest the time and resources in getting them right. While effective tests are vital, unnecessary tests don't provide educators with valuable information, and they take away valuable teaching time. By supporting our most effective assessments and eliminating others, we’ll better support our educators and students, and we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.

Thank you to Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce for hosting today's Legislative Luncheon. It is critical for government to work together. Because of partnerships with the business community, we have seen continued economic growth.

We have also invested in language immersion programs because our children will have greater opportunities in the global economy when they can speak more than one language. After only two and a half years, we have 1,400 students spending half of their school day learning in Chinese or Spanish. And we'll keep expanding next year.
How global education can help governors meet their education goals while remaining globally competitive.

Bragging rights
Jack Markell brings innovative public and private sector experience to the Office of Governor. He began his career in the private sector helping lead the wireless technology revolution as the 13th employee at Nextel (a name he coined), where he served as Senior Vice President for Corporate Development. His other business experience includes a senior management position at Comcast Corporation, work as a consultant with McKinsey and Company and as a banker at First Chicago Corporation. He was elected Delaware State Treasurer in 1998, winning three consecutive terms, including his last re-election in November of 2006 with an overwhelming 70 percent of the vote. As State Treasurer, Governor Markell worked tirelessly to improve the lives of Delawareans through innovative programs aimed at cutting spending and improving fiscal responsibility. He has been recognized in Delaware and across the country as a leader in promoting policies to help all people achieve their economic potential. As Governor, he has helped open shuttered manufacturing facilities, won President Obama's Race to the Top competition for progress in public school reform, and signed new laws to drive improvements in the economy, environment, and education. Governor Markell has also worked to advocate on behalf of Delawareans and bring national attention to his home state through national leadership roles at the National Governors Association (NGA), Democratic Governors Association (DGA), the National Assessment Governing Board, and the National Board of Directors for Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG).
