When you control the media and print the text books a lot of things get swept under the rug. That is why liberals hate talk radio and internet forums. People calling into shows and discussing there views. Or posting as we have today. unfettered conversation not towing the liberal banner they hate it!
You will see liberal posters on this forum. But they just give a few opinions then vanish for a month or two.
Did you ever notice it is NEVER the residents fault? But always some outside force that is destroying Willingboro? I wonder who this mystery person is.
Its Mr Levit's fault,because He wouldn't sell to Blacks,yea blame it on Whitey,money was never the real issue,just the rumor is good enough to play the blame game....

Well well, now we see who has influenced your life, ole' Rush-bo, you do realize that your a mere robot of his. You have absolutely no mind of your own. Your mouth spews the same gibberish as his because you don't have the brain capacity to do it on your own. I guess that is why they make the short bus.

As I've stated before, I don't get roped into the media hype rather it mainstream or alternative, I have a mind of my own and have traveled this county enough to know what is what........Rush, Sean, Keith and Ed are the types who throw a rock into a crowd then blame a certain group, you're the type who believes them, I on the other-hand will investigate it myself.......... So it is you with the thrill running up n down your leg!!!! 11th ARMORED CAVALRY REGIMENT(Blackhorse) I could tell you stories that would make your head spin!!!

Yes. Not sure of the spelling but believe her name was Maria Theresa Cassero. Pretty sure she lived in buckingham. If I remember correctly, she was staying with neighbors while her family was vacationing (she had to work.) She went home to do laundry or something. Found her in a closet. I think she'd been stabbed. As far as I know the crime has never been solved. Same with the woman and child who were blown up in their driveway in Garfield North around that same time.
I remember that tragic murder. I was a classmate of Theresa's brother, Christopher Cassero. I can still remember how shaken he was after that tragedy. I always had a person in mind as committing the murder but no evidence at all. Just a hunch. The person later committed suicide, so we'll never know. She was a very pretty girl, tragic. As for the explosion in Garfield North, I remember hearing the blast while in Jr High. It was a helluva blast, nothing left of that house. I always thought the husband was a suspect in that. We moved away shortly after that so I never really heard anything.

Alot,because the attitudes and behaviors of our innercities reflect the politics that are fed to a group of Americans about they're history thats a lie.It was the Damnocrat Party who said that Blacks were counted as not a whole person,it was the Damnocrats who distroyed the Black family by creating all this welfare.Everything is approached and critisized by the Damnocrats as racist,even the reading of the constitution.Blacks have it better then any group of Americans,what is it that they want?,does anyone know?It's not even safe for they're own people in the hood.Willingboro is just another town that is unsafe,and impoverished by them,noone else to blame ,and it's another example of BIG GOVERNMENT making life too easy,instead of working for a living.Instead of hanging out with my hommies,try staying at home and hang out with your family....

I grew up In Willingboro, Somerset Park, Shetland Lane..........My parents were one of the originals. I lived there until 1974 (When I was 15).

It was a "shock" to white people when blacks began moving in, many did not know what to make of it, many (as us) hadn't lived around black people. As a kid, I remember feeling the distrust of my family and neighbors although, it wasn't really spoken of much, at least with us kids around.

I met the first black person I ever knew, his family moved in on the street behind us. He was a great kid and we welcomed him as he did us........pretty much that was the end of fear for a while......that was in the late sixties, but by the early 1970's there were more and more blacks moving in.....and kids like Dennis were able to have black friends as well as white and over time, the two groups didn't hang out together as much.......and to some extent became distrustful. Willingboro was very much an experiment in those days.. I remember the "riots" at JFK HS and in the summer several streets away mine. There were no doubt racial tensions.

I moved away with my family (as did almost all the contemporaries of my parents) as our improving circumstances allowed.

My memories of Willingboro are the years that were earlier..........it was like "The Wonder Years".

Willingboro always feels to me like an experiment that failed.

I am not blaming whites or blacks, just saying how it was for me.

I loved my memories......saw Nixon at the plaza.......chased the "bug man" through the streets and learned to swim and dive...off the "high dive" at J. Cresswell Stuart.....I wonder if anyone remembers that the school was named after Mr Stuart who lived near where A. Levitt Jr High was, he donated the land for the school (elementary) and his wife Elanor Stuart was my 2nd grade teacher.

It was a great place to grow up..........I don't think the experiment worked tho!

Why Willingboro went down the tubes?

It's own City Council wouldn't send their children to the schools... What does that say about the people making the decisions for our community.

We have people running Willingboro Township, that don't actually care what happens to it or its residents.

The school system is the "Be all, End All" of it's community. If the residents are not properly educated, the future will be in peril. I graduated in 2005 from WHS and I was an honors student. I wasn't in the top 15 of my class, but I was in the top 25 and when I got to college I ended up in all remedial classes. How exactly does someone go from making a 3.4-3.6 gpa in High School go to college and start out in the "special classes" for no credit? Well I feel like I came out of WHS with a 8th grade education. Yes, I was smart enough to catch on and graduate from Temple University with a 3.41, but a lot of my peers are not so lucky. The transition between WHS and College is just too big.

Willingboro does not prepare it's young adults for the future. They are not properly prepped for college nor are they on the same level as the average NJ high school graduate. Yes, some are the exception to the rule, but without their own self motivation they would end up like them masses; involved in crime and baby making. Our schools are the root of this problem.

I don't care about race... Yes, race does play a part. If Moorestown "turned black" their funding would magically disappear too. The problem is, our improperly educated youth are no longer children anymore and they are the present. Without a proper education, one can not get a high paying job. Without a decent job, one can not properly support themselves or their families and then in-turn, cannot afford a higher property tax. Also, the people that are successful are leaving and not coming back.(I had to get out of there) I try to have pride in the place that I am from, but people look at me like I just told them I had cancer when I mention "The Boro." I have to immediately follow up with all the success that I've had since I left, just to show people that good things can come out of Willingboro.

Ultimately, the poor school system is causing this circle effect on the town. Poor education; Poor Career; Poor living; Reproduction... Then the cycle starts all over again.

By the way... To read some of your racist comments disgusts me. I am mixed with the best of both worlds and I can't wait until the world starts to look more like me and hopefully bridge this gap that some of you have. Just love your life and love your peers.

Shellz, during your time at WHS how much time was wasted with teachers trying to control the unruly students? If you extract those who aren't willing to learn from the classroom, you'd be surprised at how much you'll learn..........I could care less how much of a budget you have, give me a class with outdated books and students willing to learn and I will show you scholars!!!!

What about teachers taking some classroom management classes? The mostly white teachers in Willingboro are afraid of the black students and do not have control of the classroom.

Most of the teachers live outside of Willingboro and refuse to come to even Back to School Night. How involved are the teachers in the community? Where are the role models in the schools for African Americans?

Principals never come out of their offices and mingle with the students.

Learning starts at home but should be continued by the teachers at school. WE HAVE TEACHERS WHO DONT CARE ABOUT IMPROVING MY CHILD'S EDUCATION JUST ABOUT GETTING A PAY CHECK!

Mary Jane,
Classroom management classes? What will that do for them? Unruly student is a unruly student and shouldn't be in the same environment as students who are there to learn. It has to absolutely frustrating for a teacher to put up with assholes on a daily basis, I wouldn't want to come to back to school night either if I had to deal with B.S everyday.......What is so hard about removing those disruptive unruly students and putting them in their own environment????????? You are certainly right about learning starts at home.
