County Prep has been a great school for my kids so far, but I wouldn’t be surprised about this gambling thing. I heard something about teachers being pressured to do some of the extra clubs and stuff. We didn’t have connections to get in but apparently it helps. It helps more to have a sibling preference. My wife almost didn’t want to consider having our oldest apply because many years ago my daughter and her friend heard some younger kids bragging at Hamilton park about how they’re moms decided who got into the explore 2000 middle school and county prep because the moms were “best friends” with the principal. Gotta love Hudson county.

It's a numbers racket. Low level crime and corruption but shouldn't be going on in schools, and shouldn't be run by county government employees or Dem party workers. It's certainly worth investigating and stopping.

Of all the problems and corruptness in Hudson County, this is what you call out?

The thing was written confusingly, but as I understand it, it wasn't a group buying state lottery tickets and splitting the winnings, someone was using the published state numbers to run a private numbers game. Classic numbers racket. Still relatively victimless, but definitely criminal.

When I was in high school, kids of mobsters were running sports betting in the school, printed slips and all. It was the town where Henry Hill lived.

Not shocking at all given that the HCDO operates like the mob in all other respects. Now we'll see if Omerta holds. It should, they're pretty good at taking care of their "Made Men", ask Steve Lipski.

Pretty sad and demoralizing to read the article and realize that none of it comes as a surprise. Such is the state of corruption and malfeasance we have come to expect from our local pols and institutions that this type of scandal barely registers.

I was looking for information about the current school board candidates and came upon this article. Surprised I hadn't seen it in other news outlets as the story is a few months old. I have repeatedly heard that admission to these schools can be all about having the right connections, but don't know much else about the politics in the county schools.
