Only six months into her job, and Republican socialite turned State Auditor Kathy McGuiness is already requiring the General Assembly to pass specific legislation that tells her to do her job. You see, the Delaware Secretary of Education Susan Bunting had requested an audit of the Odyssey Charter School, a Greek-themed (what?) charter school in Wilmington. But McGuiness told Bunting that nah, she didn’t feel like it.
So House Bill 186 will forever require by law that the state auditor will conduct or contract for an audit to be conducted of any charter school upon request by the legislators or state officials. My only problem with this bill is that the target should be expanded beyond charter schools to any entity a legislator or state official wants audited, whether it is a school or an agency or a university.
WHERE IS THE BILL NOW? House Education 6/6/19
