The people of Jersey City, especially the children, are literally stuck between a
rock and a hard place when it comes to education. On one hand we have the State
of New Jersey, Department of Education presently overseeing the whole operation,
except for a few exceptions. Their hand picked Superintendent, Dr. Epps, is not
only a dirty mirrored reflection of the state, which has a reputation of being
self serving, self righteous, arrogant, conceded, and corrupt; he runs the
Jersey City school district as a dictator, who thinks he is above the law. Ignoring the parents and educational groups' outcries for a better system and rejecting all legitimate suggestions.
He and the New Jersey Department of Education answer to no one but themselves. Giving truth to the old saying, birds of the same feather flock together.
Then we have our elected City officials, who are giving tax abatements out, with
no responsibility towards the schools or education like candy at carnival.
Turning their backs on all, the average citizen who's trying to make ends meet,
the parents, who are trying to see some hope in the Jersey City educational
system, and to the children, who are forced to accept greed and incompetence.
Last but not least, the teachers union, just as arrogant and conceited as their
boss. This organization selfishly hand picks their own school
board candidates, sympathetic to their own agenda, as well as using
shady election tactics. Up until now they were unchained. They
had a free reign to do whatever they wanted without suffering any consequences
but the recent discovery and acknowledgement of some questionable actions by
their leader, Mr. Favia, must be investigated to the fullest extent.
Is this the tip of the iceberg? We must look further into the organization that represents
the individuals who educate our children, even if we must bring in the New
Jersey Office of the Attorney General or the United States government. So let's
unite as one, parents, taxpayers and children, to change this sub-par
unanswerable egotistical system before it's too late.
