Boy oh boy -- you public school parents sound racist.

For starters... David Sussman has a son in the high school. David has been on the board for YEARS.

Second, the district had 7500 students attending public schools 20 years ago. Today we are down to 3300 and dropping every year.

The board sees no point to wasting money any longer on empty schools.

They do not plan on doing anything right away with #6 school so if they are wrong and tomorrow a thousand public school parents join the district they can always reopen #6

I have been to many meeting and I am friendly with atleast one of the board members.

The board in general is doing great work to improve the schools and keep costs down.... Thank G-d they are not responding in kind to your comments.

How do you spell JOHN KINDER?
Because your reading skills and strategic planning are sub par, Ringelheim Bros. Barnum and Kinder circus will lose tomorrow.
It is the ONLY reason.
Not some "Masterplan," or agenda of the majority.
You folks are just plain silly and cannot be trusted to run a bingo game, let alone a district.

This is terrible and a form of discrimination
People near and far see what is happening the jewish people are only concerned for there self and all the other people that live in the community will have to suffer that should not be allowed in any form this is the second school in the 5 towns area to close. There should be a law that schools can not be bought or just closed at someone or a groups desire.
The fact that there are 7 to 1 on the board shows that this was not an impartial choice

THE FACT THE JEWS WANT THE SCHOOLS SHOULD LOWER EVERYONES ELSES TAXES ON THERE PROPERTY SCHOOL TAXES

WHY SHOULD WE CONTINUE TO PAY RAISING TAXES TO BE CRAMPED IN SCHOOLS WHEN THE JEWS HAVE THE SPACES SCHOOLS
