WILMINGTON – Delaware parents, taxpayers, and lawmakers will have an easier time understanding local school spending under legislation signed into law today by Gov. John Carney.
Senate Bill 172 creates a framework of uniform, statewide reporting standards for building-level expenditures in Delaware’s public and charter schools, which the bill’s prime sponsor says could be the difference between good and bad education policy.
WILMINGTON – Delaware has become the latest state to close an implicit loophole that could allow law enforcement and corrections officers to use consent as a defense for sexual assault of a person in custody.
Rape is illegal in all 50 states, but troubling reports – including a recent incident in New York – have led more than a dozen states to clarify statutes that failed to establish unconditional sexual boundaries between police and/or corrections personnel and people in their custody.
