Q: WHAT WILL RIDGEWOOD SCHOOLS DO FOR 9/11 ???
A: NOTHING (lip service at best)
Will they have a walkout and a service ?
Will they have an assembly?
Will they have guest speakers?
Will 9/11 be incorporated into the day’s curriculum?
Are Ridgewood teachers assigning thoughtful projects?
Are they raising money to donate to Wounded Warriors?
Are there any immersive cross-discipline events planned?
Does the NJEA have any guidance?
A quick look at their website shows NOTHING for 9/11
It DOES however have these front page stories:
– “Unionism cannot be a spectator sport”
– Two pro-Menendez and 2 pro-Murphy articles
– An anti-gun article
– and an anti-Kavanaugh article “Stand up for public education: Oppose the Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court”
And this is a town that is in close proximity to and has close ties to NYC
and more importantly this is a town who lost 12 of its own.
