Hackensack Discussion / Re:School Board Election Poll (Participate!)
« on: April 19, 2004, 01:23:24 PM »
I have a child in second grade at Hillers school and I'm pleased with their curriculum.  Everyone is quick to pass the blame on test scores and everything else. Look, it's time some of the parents take some of the blame. I  am on the PTA and on back to school night I had parents saying that their child is in third grade and they didnt know what teacher they had.  I was upset that after three weeks of school they didnt know that. Or I like when the parents say they send the kids to school to learn so why should they do stuff at home with them. We have great teachers but , they can't do it alone. We as parents should be helping. The kids go to school  six hrs a day and only 180 days a year. We are responsable for the rest of the time. Maybe instead of buying the kids $100 sneakers or $80 name brand jeans the money could of bought some flash cards. The parents need to be more involved with thier children(myself included).It's easy to blame it on race or the income. I don't think it has anything to do with it.  Dr. Montesano was at our school on 4/7 to go over the budget for us and answer any questions. The school notified all 500 + students, and I was able to count on two hands how many parents showed up.The BOE is doing a good job, I think to vote for the challengers would be wrong.
