This is happening all over the state = just take a look at the
teachers salaries and the unwanted / unneeded supervisory positions in the Secaucus school system = the new superintendent
of the schools created a new position for one of her lackeys
that pays $ 160K a year and the position never existed in the school system before = many of the teachers do not like the new superintendent and are taking early retirement.
I would like to see Christie go thru the Secaucus school system
with a wrecking ball.

This is a skewed article. All of these school districts run seperate budgets.

Vernon's school budget passed. this conference is in the budget. The 8 administrators that went have a combined salary of over 1 million. So in all the $4,811 isnt exactly squandering town funds. If you dont like your towns school budget, vote it down.

I live in Stanhope where both budgets (Lenape Valley and Stanhope Elementary) were voted down and the schools spent over $5000.00 anyway. This is just typical of waste and abuse in the public school system. Keep paying those outrageous property taxes and supporting the welfare system that is public school.

Unfortuately, Vernon is filled with idiots. They like wasting other people's money especially while their children are in school. Funny, when they leave the school system these are the same old coots who whine, piss and moan about how their taxes have increased and can't afford living here anymore.

DUH! Of course we vote NO. Unless people wake up and smell the coffee and understand the consequences of their actions NOW we are all screwed.. Paying the highest property taxes in the country and roughly 60% goes to these schools.... actually.... in these teacher's pockets who are failing their student's proven by state testing and including the No Child Left Behind Act.... Research it. Vernon is lagging horribly. GO MORRIS CATHOLIC!

You know.... Neither Christie's or Crozine's kids went to public school. Nor did President Obama's.... or Politicians in general. What are we thinking? Good enough for us but not for them???

Another reason for independent schools! The public school teachers are envied by their private school counterparts. Yet some Ivy league educated women cannot hold their noses and humble themselves to teach the children of their social inferiors.This skewed attitude does not prevent them from being jealous of the affluent,academically skilled students sent by caring parents, and fighting for every crumb that falls their way,while hating the droppers of those crumbs.Way back when before our population surge, superbly educated people deigned to taech us poor kids and raise our expectations.
