Just the facts

To the Editor:

Fact 1: The school budget overspent $6,000,000. How did the BBOED allow this to happen?
Fact 2: Each class room has 20-25 students. Where do they go with the layoffs of 287 teachers?
Fact 3: The State DOE won’t provide fair funding to the district. How is this different from the last 10 years?
Fact 4: A local politico cautions against finger-pointing. How about involvement/leadership?
Fact 5: Dr. Michael Wanko arrives on July 1. Why are the children/parents/teachers/citizens forced to wait until July 6?
As an aside, how can the media headline a McDonald’s closing and ignore the lack of a “Thorough and Efficient Education” for the Bayonne community?
