WILMINGTON – Delaware Department of Education Secretary Mark Murphy joins the Governor for his weekly message, taped at Maple Lane Elementary School in the Brandywine School District, as they welcome back students for a new school year.

“We know this will be an important year for our students, parents, educators and state,” said Governor Markell.  “ We deepen implementation of our Race to the Top plan; raise the bar for students with Common Core standards; and further develop the education profession with more comprehensive evaluations of performance.  As excited as we are about that progress, we know our work isn’t over.”

“We are on the path to success, but we must continue to work hard, making challenging decisions and difficult changes,” said Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy.  “And we must continue to evaluate openly what is working and be willing to change direction when needed.”

At noon every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form.  The message is available on:
