The EM Superintendent brokered a deal with the WHB Super. for two EMO kids who are sophomores at WHB busted for selling oxi in school. One of the kids mothers works as a secretary in EM. They all kept it quiet as WHB didn't want to lose the "CASH COW" which is the east moriches tax payer. Shame on all involved in this cover up!!

Sorry, but I'll need to see some more factual evidence that this occurred before I run with it.

The tip of the iceberg....if someone were to look at the history of the last 30 years between WHB and EMO, it would make for some very interesting reading.....

I have lived here for around 15 years and some of the things I have seen has made my skin crawl. Like I said before, the sheeple in this town need to wake up and realize that they are being fleeced. Already the propoganda is flying around town WRT it being "all about the children". It's NOT about the children.
Then there is Russo trying to get developers (Adelphi University for one) to build here in order to help with the tax base.
So we are going to crowd up our town, have even more 18 wheel trucks driving through our neighborhood so we can support the salaries and inept business decisions of the school board etc?
Great idea... NOT!
Reduce costs....not try to raise income.
Maybe a few less plasma TV's in the the new EM school?
I wonder whose brother/sister/uncle got the contract for those.

I heard today that EMO isn't even going to have a re vote. They are just going right to an austerity budget. Has anyone else heard this?
#27 Jun 6, 2008
That is correct.
It's the classic go higher than you expect so when they vote it down you end up where you want to be in the first place, money wise of course.
Get ready for the austerity sob stories from the teachers to begin.
They are gearing up to seed the press already.
Of course it's all about the children.
It's all about money.

If the goal is to provide the best education for the students of East Moriches then the choice is clear:
Merge with Westhampton or continue with the same choice system. Interesting that when the students got the most information they ever had about the programs and offerings of all the schools the fewest number of students choose CM or Eastport SM.
If the goal is to save money than the choice is clear, merge with Eastport South Manor.
Under any circumstance, the best choice is not CM.
These are the facts, I am sorry that the facts hurt your feelings. The facts also remain that most of the people in the community still want the choice system. By the way, unlike Washington, the Board are not paid.

Only about 10% of the parents actually took tours of the high schools. What facts did they take into consideration when choosing, if they did not even bother to look for themselves?
The WHB merger is a pipe dream. The EM BOE throws that out there to muddy the waters.
