Edgewater Park School Bd and Budget Election

Tomorrow is the School Board Election along with the School Budget.

This election is important because the school tax represents the largest portion of your tax bill.

Our schools represent our greatest asset for our township's childern and residents.

Please take the time to vote. If you don't vote then don't complain about your taxes!

Our town is judged on the quality of our school district.

Aren't these the same people that have raised our school taxes in the past...Who can we write-in?

Aren't these the same people who told us that the bond for the windows and doors won't raise our taxes because they were going to use tuition money from other programs to pay for it? Then they raised taxes to make up the shortfall from the tuition money. Come on now. Each year the newspapers show the statewide test scores and our No Child Left Behind rankings we get lower! Throwing money at the problem doesn't seem to be a solution.

WHY ARE OUR SCHOOL TAXES GOING UP AGAIN, WHEN WE HAVE RECEIVED MORE STATE MONEY? OTHER TOWNS ARE EITHER STAYING THE SAME AS 2007 OR ACTUALLY GOING DOWN. NOT RIGHT!

You know what...I think you should just vote down the school budget every year, let the schools go to crap so your property value goes down more and your kids can't get a proper education. Take away all the government services: fire, police, municipal...have absolutely nothing. Just let all us residents do everything our selves for free and homeschool the kids. Since ther won't be any taxes we won't need jobs and can take care of all of this work....

To the author of the last comment:
If you actually read the prior comments, you would might understand that it is not about a lack of willingness to support the schools, but an interest in getting them run more efficiently. Schools in NJ have the largest rate of misuse of public funds in the state. ANY contractor that does work for a school system will tell you that it is their most lucrative contract. Why is that?
The answer is because people managing public funds don't treat the money like it is coming out of their pockets (just ask the township committee).
I could send a child to "Friends School" for what I am paying for school taxes in Edgewater Park! Having had the benefit of living in multiple towns in NJ, I can tell you that NONE of our tax dollars are managed properly in EP.
