Mel------------How does paying teachers much more then they are worth help anybody except theRead More teachers?

If Rutgers needs to economize, they can start by cutting their ridiculous, and losing, footballRead More program that costs the taxpayers millions to prop up.

The educrats have never abandoned their battle cry,"It's for the kids!"The purposes ofRead More this initiative are to encourage parental involvement and recognizing student achievements." Certainly the purpose is NOT free food for teachers. Community clean - ups teach the students to respect the environment, that they are a small part of a much greater whole, and they learn that the average person uses an astonishing 300 plastic bags a year! We pay taxes for the D.P.W., but that's not the point. Auto body students learn auto body skills. That the teachers get free labor and free use of a facility that is funded in part by private auto body shops is hardly worth mentioning. The Breakfast Club teaches the students food preparation, ordering supplies , billing, etc. The fact that teachers get a modestly priced breakfast delivered every morning by students who make $5.00 a week, is neither here nor there. It's all "For the kids.The educrats should stop being babies. They should say," NOTHING is primarily for the kids.THEY are at best, an afterthought. We are out for all we can get, and taxpayers and kids be damned."

"More than 500 Newark students rallied in April to call for local control of the schools."Read More Fine, as long as they fund those schools locally and stop fleecing the rest of New Jersey.

Gordo K Well said,sir! You are absolutely right!

A great school and congratulations. The school is like one big family. They deserve the status.

Thanks JV, I've noticed that tone as well.. Regarding the posts on NY State and the Lunar New Year.Read More that's ONLY done because those specific schools have 50-80% Chinese population.. that is MUCH MUCH different than we have in Short Hills...and is NOT a comparable situation by any means..
Cham June 13, 2014 at 08:00 pm
It should be noted that the Jewish holidays that are days off from school (Rosh Hashana and YomRead More Kippur) are because it is forbidden by Jewish law to work on those days AND synagogue services are during the day. (Yom Kippur is also a fast day). They are not days off from school so that Jews can assert their "cultural diversity". (Note that other Jewish holidays, like Passover and Chanukah, are not days off from school in Millburn).

Patch editors should do their own research before publishing any comments. Above comments by JV areRead More false and are not true. Please research, investigate and find out for yourself how much truth is in these comments. Otherwise I have to say that Patch is biased.

The school is entitled to some control over the learning environment in its building. Students areRead More to keep cell phones in purses or lockers during the day. If its out, teacher takes it,, it goes to the office and kiddo can get it at the end of the day. Not too difficult and the students learn that sometimes you have to follow someone else's rules. It won't kill you.
John Wayne June 16, 2014 at 07:09 pm
That depends on the school. Some schools are very lax and look the other way on to many issuesRead More including this one. Yes, The schools should get more involved what is going on during the school day. Once you allow this to happen for one group of kids you have to continue to do it for all the kids. You can't pick and choose who you want to call the police on. The police should always be called if something like this is going on during school hours. If it is happening after hours then the parents and the police should be involved. To many schools look the other way for only certain kids and it is not right. That is where the law suits come in.
Rick Ricky June 17, 2014 at 08:21 pm
Let me guess. Bridgewater/Raritan is listed as a top school by someone. Now you know why? All theseRead More top schools lie by not reporting the crap that goes on.
Marlboro Mann June 4, 2014 at 10:44 am
God bless the proliferation of tutoring centers. Our taxes pay teachers to show up at work and thenRead More they really teach when it comes to the after school jobs. BTW should I send in my Abbott check now or flush the cash down the toilet-Same Result.
Rick Ricky June 18, 2014 at 06:22 pm
No, This is a joke. Just because someone graduates college for who knows what doesn't mean they areRead More smarter than someone who did not attend college. A lot of useless degrees that jobs are hard to come by. Just because a poll taken shows jersey has 34.5 pct who has degrees doesn't mean they are smart. The polls taken and what and how they come up to determine what they do is ridiculous.
Outofcontrol June 27, 2014 at 12:17 pm
You could never tell by the politicians we elect...just take a look at our Governor. He has multipleRead More degrees but still stupid and arrogant.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!
