Maybe he will improve just about the worst library system I have ever seen in my life. Doubtful though

Plenty of peds and GPs are recommending against giving children the vaccine, of course. I don't know why this can't be discussed. It's not a black or white issue.

People may be leaving JC, but their homes are being purchased by people leaving NYC. So, it's still really good for sellers in JC.

We're thinking about leaving JC. How's the market looking right now for sellers? I see an awful lot for sale. Wondering how much people are getting for their homes.

We also left years ago. Look at the size of the waitlist. It used to be quite long. Not anymore. The school really has gone downhill.

I know this flag was has been adopted by some extreme right groups lately, but was curious about it being hung upside down.
Google and FB led me to Alaskans for Liberty who seem to use this flag upside-down as their logo. But we're a little far from AK...

I assume this was a prank (in poor taste IMO), or am I missing something?


Whatever it is, it's very scary. You shouldn't look directly at it. It may make you an extremist. That's how these things work. Just keep googling and I'm sure you'll figure out what to do.

I've loved living in JC for a long time. But the taxes are choking us. It breaks my heart that we are considering leaving but at some point, we just can't continue to pay more. I'm watching neighbors who I've known for decades and they are leaving too. This is incredibly sad for us. JC will become home to the uber rich and dirt poor. The middle class will be gone.

Not to worry. NJ will soon be bankrupt and so will JC. As the top earners continue to leave NJ in droves, those who stay behind will have even more taxes raised on them. What a wonderful time to live in the great state of NJ!

(PS, what idiots vote FOR a tax increase during a pandemic where people are losing income? Or do we use Dominion voting machines in NJ?)

Any thoughts?

"With the benefits of pre-K programs fading by the third grade, why would American want to spend billions more to add another year of school to an already failed 13?"

http://www.educationviews.org/vanderb ... ve-impact-young-children/

And a link to the Vanderbilt study: http://www.brookings.edu/research/pap ... rssid=LatestFromBrookings

Also, it is interesting that the more expensive prek's are moving away from the more "traditional" prek's in their curriculum. It's a legitimate question: why do we need ANY free prek? Why not subsidized daycare for those who qualify?

I think I missed the part of this conversation where we discuss how electing any of the people running for Bd of Ed was actually going to make 1 ounce of difference on the sub standard quality of education that my kids got in the JCPS. The political discussion is nice and interesting though.

Wait - I know, "change happens slowly" or something like that.

Re: 5 areas where Jersey City schools have improved, district report says
#18

I am generally amazed at how some people are ok with the glacial speed of change in public schools. While those few kids may have gotten college credit for AP classes (more and more colleges don't give AP credit anymore), thousands of kids were warehoused and not being educated. So how long should a family wait for THEIR child to be educated? 5 years? 10 years? It's the same song and dance that was spoken since when my parents were in public school. So, that's going on about 4 decades and the schools continue to get worse. It is admirable that you took the job on the board of ed, but seriously, how long would you tell a parent to wait until their child can be expected to be properly educated in their JCPS? Cause my kid only has one shot at a childhood education .

So in my book, there are 2 quantifiable improvements here: the physical upgrades and the breakfasts. Increased graduation rates mean nothing unless you can illustrate that these kids actually fulfilled those requirements and don't show up at college needing remediation. It's easy to push kids through whether they deserve it or not. Reduction in suspension rate is also meaningless. Lots of districts are experimenting with not suspending students and having healing circles or some kind of thing like that. and the technology thing is totally meaningless if you followed the chrome book debacle that happened in LA.

So the buildings got prettier and or safer and more kids got food. How is the actual education?

Temples don't "pass the plate" every week or tithe. Membership fees and high holiday tickets are really the only income they get. And the membership fees at some of the temples in Hudson county are some of the lowest I have ever seen. I can't imagine any temple would turn anyone away who couldn't pay for a ticket. But it is nice that TBE has the finanvial flexibility to offer free holiday access.

This seems vitally important in the city right now. sarcasm intended

Really not trying to be snarky, but why this increase? The schools are filled with the same substandard teachers and administrators with an even worse common core curriculum. Is it just the free day care? Again, not trying to stir the pot.

What I find most disheartening is the dismissive nature of responses to Fletch. I didn?t vote for Fletch, and I did vote for Fulop, but I appreciate the point he has raised. Forgive this generalization, but the tone on this site has been blindly anti-Healy and pro-Fulop with little critical thought or analysis (I always thought Healy cared deeply for the city, but was too entrenched with friends and politicians he felt indebted to, which could never have done anything to uplift this poor place). There were plenty of things wrong with the Healy administration, which is why we voted him out. But it?s crazy to me that if you even suggest we scrutinize the decisions Fulop is making, you?re accused of having ?sour grapes,? told that the people being chosen are more qualified than anyone under Healy was, will do a better job, etc (as a blanket response). I know a lot of people whom had ranted and raved about Healy appointing friends and cronies, who now, after having campaigned for Fulop, are the beneficiaries of the positions they were dismayed at others holding. Perhaps these people, and their self-interest, will produce better results, but I?m concerned it will be business as usual. I guess after having voted for Obama and feeling duped, I have my guard up. I worry that like Obama, Fulop may just be a more polished version of the same variety of bad politics.


Ha, ha. You voted for Obama

Um, last time I checked I thought fulop was a politician. JC is a stepping stone for him. He's gotta do what he's gotta do to get to the next job. If that means whispering sweet nothings in the ears of the soccer mommies of JC to get elected, then that's what he'll do. It's not like he actually cares about people! And if it means he will allow shenanigans to happen like this to happen, then that's what he'll do.

Fulop's supporters would also do better if they cut back on the demagogue sentiment. They remind me of the blind Obama'08 supporters. Fulop is just a guy. A politician. If he is elected, he won't fix the city. He's just a better choice than the others and probably will make some improvements. The downtown hysteria surrounding fulop is a little off putting for rational people such as myself.
