More on plans for “donated” BoA building

February 23, 2012

Last week Charlie Copeland dropped a hint that there would be 4 schools installed in the building. Now another insider gives up a suggestion of what kinds of schools the Longwood Foundation might pick for the former Bank of America building in Wilmington.

Charter School of Wilmington President Chuck Baldwin has been getting some rounds of well-deserved applause lately for his blog post, in which Chuck describes how he stood up to influential friends and parents who wanted special treatment to get their child into CSW.

But also in Chuck’s post was this:

This building, which will be used for education, will allow for successful models to replicate in Delaware (KIPP, Montessori). Schools will be established in the inner city and provide educational opportunities for thousands of our children. DuPont and Bank of America are committing million of dollars in resources and are truly “putting their money where their mouth is” when it comes to education reform.

The picture is getting a little clearer. I get that we are being subjected to a sophisticated rollout campaign for this program, and we aren’t being told everything all at once.

But am I being too cynical to think that the schools for the new building and their leadership have already been selected?

    no, you are not.

    You are not being too cynical.

    We are on the need to know plan. This ball has obviously been rolling for quite some time. My bet is this is pretty much a done deal.
