While Hoboken argues about Hola and the distribution of funds to charter schools, they conveniently forget about the discriminatin in the state funding formula. While other school districts lose funds because of Abott and Bacon funding, it is those districts that are the real losers. Money does not equate to providing quality education. If the Hoboken Boe continues to fight the issue the State may need to evaluate whether the state funding still applies to Hoboken.

For starters, the money being used to fund HoLa is coming from the VOTER CONTROLLED public schools and is going to a completely unaccountable organization that is rife with conflicts of interest and self-dealing. Secondly, your kids were probably never going to a VOTER CONTROLLED public school in Hoboken so please don't pretend they were. The demographics don't lie. And I really don't care if the B&G gets rent, it is rent money on a building provided for practically free that is being paid from a completely unaccountable organization to another organization that is unaccountable to use a city building. But you don't quite understand that fact nor do you even care where the money comes from or where it goes. You got yours and that is all that matters. You also don't care that every non-teacher at HOLA is completely redundant and you don't care that a bunch of those people only got those jobs because of who they know or who they are politically connected to. You don't care that the BOE could easily absorb all the kids at HOLA in the existing buildings using the staff we already pay for at a fraction of the cost of HOLA (not like you'd take them up on that offer though). All that you turn a blind eye to because "you got yours". You are jut happy you don't have to pay out of pocket for private school and you got to stick the taxpayer the bill instead - a bill we were never going to have to pay if not for HOLA. But you will never admit any of this because the implications of admitting it are just to damning.
