Not a good time to be entering into public schools ...

Calling all residents to do the best for public-school children - Examiner, Letter to the Editor, 6/4/09:
I truly believe that children should have extracurricular activities — art, dance, music or sports.

The Township Committee shaved over $1 million off the budget, which will result in the loss of teachers.

it's time for the residents and the Board of Education to challenge the state for more funding. I remember everyone was so excited when we became an "I" district. ... It means less funding from the state ...

It's not fair that we pay 87 percent of school budget from our taxes when another district pays 18 percent of their school budget or when we pay approximately $11,400 per pupil and they are paying over $22,000 per pupil. ... I'm talking about Asbury Park folks. Don't you think we deserve more?
