We at TSD are celebrating the end of 2011 with the year’s best posts. It’s been a year filled with great stories and strong opinions, always reflecting the best of the First State. 

ORIGINAL PUBLISHING DATE: September 1, 2011

School bells are ringing all across the First State as students return for another year. For the last month, we’ve been waist-deep in the education debate, listening as people all over Delaware – teachers, business people, students, reformers, board members and the general public – discussed the state of our schools from many different angles. All told, it creates a holistic view of the condition of education in Delaware in 2011.
