Re: JC teachers who made 99K or more in 2019

Home away from home


I taught high school for a little over ten years and retired at sixty-two.

Though there are many wonderful people in the craft it has to be said that longevity, not merit brings high salaries. The longer one stays in the job, the more one makes; so why leave?
Young people entering the profession are faced with lower salaries and longer times to get their steps to higher salaries. So, as a rule of thumb, the best and the brightest pack it in while the long term people stay in place.
As a result the system becomes stale and less productive.

"teach LGBT history" - what do you think this is going to consist of? It's going to be one page in a 400 page text book and a ten minute discussion about civil rights for all and the Stonewall Riots. Maybe one question on a test or quiz. None of your kids will "turn" gay if they weren't already.


I disagree with your assessment.
As with all of the social and cultural curricula in the schools and colleges, the focus will grow and grow until it becomes an expensive part of education It's the way of society today.

I'm a little concerned that marginal "historical" figures will become subjects to be studied as the curriculum grows. I may be wrong, but let's see.

Since we're breaking new ground why not teach the young how to avoid pederasts and the like who may be in educational, social and religious institutions ?

As vile as it sounds going through the garbage could result in finding the culprit.

People should take a little time and study up on the life of Alexander Hamilton (and as well his benefactor George Washington). They were not the historical figures portrayed in modern history.
This book is a great revelation concerning the character of these two:

I think the "slum clearance" that took down the south part of the Village which is where Ferris High School and the other school is and then the mudhuts and the projects accross from St. Bridgets also impacted the neighborhood in a very negative manner.


My grandparent's home was across from the Montgomery Gardens (Projects). After WWII Urban renewal plans were allotted to level all of those blocks right down to the turnpike. Families had no choice and had to get out after a decided upon fee was paid. Neighborhoods disappeared in a short time around Fremont, Wayne, Montgomery etc. It was quite a wrenching experience for families. In actuality, there was nothing wrong with the homes, businesses, schools etc. which were demolished, it was a political decision. I don't recall the slums or mud huts that are being alluded to here. Were any of the posters there when it happened? I was. Generations of families were moved from in many cases the homes that they were born into. Today those homes would be assessed at ridiculous amounts and taxed commensurately.

So many factors contributed to the changes in Jersey City from the sixties onward. All of them contributed to white flight to the suburbs and a replacing of the cultures and practices mentioned in the article.
Looking now at what's become of some of the wonderful neighborhoods that existed in my youth I just shake my head in bewilderment. But then, everything changes, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.

I remember back in the fifties walking into an Italian deli on Brunswick street with my Grandfather. He would use a big metal scoop to take the cavatelli out of a burlap gunny sack that was in a keg.
I can't describe what Italian pastry tasted like back then. A cannoli and the pasta chote had taste that still linger in my memory. There was a baker--I think on First street--called Umbep. He was a beautiful man--always gave you a little something when you went into the shop.
There's still some old timers in my father's neighborhood on Colgate who remember. If you're lucky they're out in front of their houses when the sunny weather rolls in come springtime.

Re: Female Jogger Slain - Body Found in Lincoln Park Lake

Even though murders tend to be everyday occurrences in our times, there is something especially heinous about this poor woman's death. She was all alone in the United States. Maybe she was just responding in a kind way to her murderer. And as well, I don't recall the lake ever being part of so horrible a crime. People will always think of what happened there in connection with this horrid act.
I know that not all of the people who come here as illegals are vile creatures as was this cretin, but Mayor Fulop still should be careful about disregarding the laws of the land. He made this guy feel welcome, offered sanctuary to him and he brought danger to Jersey City with that welcome.

For shame....

Whew, that's some list.

I'm going to rely on the two major NY magazines and THE ATLANTIC to dig into the minutiae of the deal. It's a pretty interesting story.
