What happened to Garfield? Think they all died! Maybe now they will stay on their own side of the bridge.

You know the song (I think by Frank S.) And now the end is near and so I face the final curtain... It's probably their final curtain time so...that's the only reason they're not on this blog now. But when the subject (as you said died) and it's all over with ---then the whole family of them will be blogging away. As I stated before first 'you know who' claims to work with the teachers and children and never answered a question as to if all 'her' children graduated from Garfield High...Then claims to be a teacher...interesting....amazi ng or should I say amusing.

Is this it? Anytime the teachers disagree they could just walk out of school and not teach? If they do not want to teach subjects then they should at least teach the children to have some kind of respect for authority. The teachers proved to the children their respect for them. I wonder if the childrn are allowed to show their respect for the teachers? One of the children I mentored was in special classes in Garfield. And do you know if this child didn't want to stand up to salute the flag he/she didn't have to. As he/she said...I'm in special classes so I don't have to. What a great school system. Amazing isn't it...oh no it's actually amusing.

These teachers and their aides sure do need to get a grip. As you say OVER PAID & UNDER WORKED! I too find it very amusing how the teachers could get up and walk out of school leaving the children to fend for themselves. I wonder if the teachers know how to or think that a salute to OUR COUNTRYS FLAG is important! Good for you wolf getting out of Garfield. Moved you seem to know what you are talking about. CGP you have it down pat with the truth. And we have to pay taxes for these teachers and the idiots who are suppose to be helping them. God Bless.

Things aren't changing for the better Garfield. We all hear buzz words like "quality education" and "no child left behind." One thing you can be sure of is your taxes will go up and the quality will go down. It's a dirty business with politics in the middle. The kids are used as pawns in a game the taxpayers lose and the bad guys win. School boards such as those in cities like Garfield composed of people who are just in it for their own financial gain will give you a great yield of substandard education, overpaid administration and large sums of money missing that could have used to offset property taxes for the taxpayers. In the end, everyone loses except the political hacks and their cohorts. It's not going to get better until legislators start passing laws to protect us from this kind of mismanagement. Don't hold your breath, not in our life time. Most of the legislators look the other way and think this is not typical everywhere.
I don't blame the teachers as much as the school boards who created this monster. The teachers just want to get in on the gravy train. They see how well many of the board members have done for the people who matter most to them with little respect for the poor slobs who have to pay for it.

Done Wrong---Do you work closely with the teachers and students OR Are you a teacher? You seem to be a bit comfused which one is correct. Yes, I am very glad both your children graduated high school even though one was from Bergen Tech...they have teachers over there who do not walk out on ther children and teach like they are suppose to.

ause the were unopposed. Its the same with the city council. the same clowns will get in again because the people in garfield like getting an umbrella up their butts and now there opening the umbrellas.Look at public works 5 guys go on a job 1 is working and 4 are holding up shovels with their chins.the clown in charge rides around looking for hot water heaters and if the home owner dont have a permit he's fined. this clown should go back where he comes from. For the size of the PD how many captains do they need or supposed to have, also 1 was promoted so he can get a bigger pension. It just goes on and on.

Yea Mike V Lodi/Baltimore MD =- I and everyone else has to agree with you on your last blog. But teahers going on strike and dear old Done Wrong doesn't even know if she teaches or works with the teachers...Amazing isn't it. No wonder the kids """who graduate""" don't understand and get confused what a red blinking light means on a police car. I guess by the time 'you know who' realized how bad the school system was and sent her 'lets say SLOW' son to Bergen Tech it was too late since he only had a few more years left. Wow what 8 years could do to mess you up ... amazing ... But then again...they are having lots of fun and games messing with 'devine intervention'...What the heck it's not going to be their freedom...they seem to be enjoying it. Education can be wonderful 'when and if' it's taught.

No child left behind is the biggest joke going!! It's a game of chess, kings and pawns. Definately a substandad education. Teachers that don't teach and students that don't have to learn.

Here we go again while working...A call comes over the 2 way radio wanting to know ---- What's going on in Garfield? No wonder why John Kubasta didn't know any better because every time the teachers got mad they stop teaching. Then when I came home my phone started again with ... What's going on in that town...First they try to run over the cops in town and now the teachers are refusing to teach. I am so sorry I ever told anyone I ever came from Garfield. Well Wolf52--Now I think I need to change my X-town as well as my last name....And the saga goes on. What a great town!
Was this middle aged man's family serious when they stated that he most likely didn't know or understand that he needed to stop for the police? Oh My...I wonder why anyone would even say that about him???
Were they serious or joking around?

He knew what he was doing; he saw you in the back seat of the police car and knew if they arrested him he would have to ride with you.

Yea right...that's how come you signed on once again as moved....HeeHaw. Ooppppssss my lucky number 3s came up for my post-numbers again. Hey - remember how Slows Nana (goat) and PopPop used to end up in the hospital from beating each other up. Imagine thinking your father is so great because he pulls he telephone off the wall then wacks Nans in the head and gives her many many stitches. The first time I met this Nana person he had pulled half of her hair right out of her head and her kids thought it was the most normal thing to do. Maybe that's why dear old Mama took Smartie pants and kept banging her head into the bunk bed as well as beating up her slower-one. Then Mama was a bully and told them if they told...they'd get it worst. She needed to be jailed....as her husband was...... Heck even her off spring enjoyed trying to follow their footsteps for awhile.......Bangoooooo

You should be ashamed for failing the polygraph test you were given.
