SO, we cannot say GOD or the Pledge Of Allegiance in schools , or wear religious slogans on clothingRead More in schools, but the KKK's right to freedom of speech and hateful bigotry is NOT a hate crime and is allowed to uphold their own freedoms in society ???????? What am I missing here. ???????

The reason for poverty means absolutely nothing to kids. All they know is that they are hungry,Read More perhaps living in a beat up old car or homeless shelter, have holes in their shoes and have never ending medical issues like asthma. Get past the reason for a bit and help the kids. Time enough for bigots later.
Aman77 April 24, 2014 at 02:47 pm
Lefty libs can cry all they want and say "no child should be hungry" (yeah? How noble.Read More Now, how many have YOU fed lately besides your own). But the fact is that there is an undeniable link between single parent households (usually mother led) and poverty. That is not 'right wing BS' Brian. It's just a fact. Sorry. I know the truth hurts your shiny happy world view. Do all kids raised by single mothers end up poor? No. Do all kids in two-parent households stay out of poverty? No. But to sit there and deny that the single worst calamity in our society over the past 50 years (coincidentally after the 1960s flower power wave brought to you by the left) has been the explosion in single family homes as the nuclear family continues to disintegrate. Blacks have gone from 20% to 70% illegitimacy and no amount of federal dollars *I doubt paid by gjc, hence her self-righteous drivel* can hold back the social destruction this trend has caused. Hispanics and whites are well on their way to joining them so this isn't a racial thing...it's a cultural thing. Bastard children were stigmatized in the past not because they were/are bad kids, but because there was a tacit understanding among cultures that a society of fatherless children is bad for society. If you don't believe me then take a drive to Camden. The left can't have it both ways. They can't say that it's heartless and cruel to stigmatize fathering children out of wedlock (and in many cases again and again and again) and then wring their hands and moan at the inevitable societal destruction ie. children in poverty the kumbaya world they want to create comes into being and deny their responsibility for all the chaos and pain they unwittingly unleashed. And they sure can't blame "heartless right wingers" who, after watching 50 years and 4 trillion dollars of a "war on poverty" get poured down the drain think that maybe the problem is cultural and not financial?

Marlboro Mann April 24, 2014 at 12:53 pm
Just remember that the only three profitable professions in this wretched state are publicRead More employees, politicians, and mobsters. The rest of us will continue to pay and pay and pay...............so don't expect any relief from FRHSD, its just another den of patronage and a cash cow for its employees.
cynicinmarlboro April 24, 2014 at 01:03 pm
PaladinSF, you are correct. Interest in running for elections is also based on political connectionsRead More in a supposedly non-political position, as has been seen too many times in this and other towns. I pass the county school on Koslowski all the time and buses from all around constantly pull in and out of the lot so there are those students who must be attending only part of the day. So I don't see where it precludes a reciprocal relationship among the FRHSD high schools should the FRHSD be disbanded. I'm trying to understand your reasoning for duplication of personnel should the FRHSD administration be disbanded. The towns already have a superintendent and others performing the same duties. Why hire more? The only real changes I see might be in the high school itself, depending on how the organization develops. Perhaps we might even save money in salaries and benefits in the long run. Mike Rath, it was reported some time back that oversight in spending has been lacking, especially for legal expenses. Now that the old firm is out of the picture and the FRHSD got their hands slapped it might be better, but the FRHSD administration, as a whole, is still some of the highest paid in the state. Which, I assume, is why this was written in the first place. Do they really need another increase? Bad enough all the other unions feel they are entitled to more every single year, which the FRHSD BOE grants with each contract.

B. Dub April 24, 2014 at 02:46 pm
Honestly, Michael, yes. I really can't imagine what that will be like. I have a good friend who isRead More as liberal as they get (we don't discuss politics, which is why we still like each other). There is a tiny part of me that would like to see Hillary win just to prove to my friend how wrong she is about her. But the rational part of me is scared - really scared - of how many fewer rights we would have under a Hillary presidency combined with a Democratic Congress. I mean we've already lost enough in the last 8 years; we need to stop the bleeding.
cynicinmarlboro April 23, 2014 at 04:22 pm
No FRHSD school on the list but they're still going to ask for more from us in taxes for the nextRead More year, according to the papers. And the county schools - as good as they are - still run at a higher cost per pupil than local districts.
Emily April 24, 2014 at 08:04 am
The high technology schools are highlighted in the top ratings. Not all students have theRead More opportunity to be involved in these programs. It's a select number of high schoolers in those "specialty areas" who have the advantage of pursuing their future interests. It's a very homogeneous group of motivated students who are able to be on a track to advance academically whether it be in the area of business, law, health, engineering, culinary, etc. So, when top schools are listed it usually refers to smaller classes, high interest, and homogeneous groupings. Principals and Superintendents like to promote these programs as examples of their school's success. Often, the entire picture, including problems within the system aren't brought to light.

@Charles Taite - As one of the commentators responding to and to whom Black Panther of PoetryRead More responded I happen to agree with you. I don't know whether Patch removed him or whether he did so himself. I for one did not flag any of his comments as offensive regardless of my personal dislike of some of the comments he made. If Patch did so shame on Patch. P.S. As much as I have issues with what he wrote he is no where close to the KKK for bigotry or racist beliefs or talk but your point is well taken.

Clyde Z April 23, 2014 at 07:59 am
her hiring was a joke, I mean they said they did a background check: must not have used GoogleRead More search because they've listed her troubles before her hire at Rutgers. Not to mention that she "lied" on her application. I've had co-workers fired after a month, months and in another case years after their hire due to lies on their application. Hermann's lies could/should have been cought by simple 10th grade investigation
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
