Reader says , “Our Superintendent leaves a lot to be desired”

Our Superintendent leaves a lot to be desired. He continually posts “feel good” missives and cannot see the problems right in front of his face. I thought he was “voluntarily” remaining until his last child was out of school. I guess he decided not to give up his “cozy cushion” and look for a job that would pay better and also give him the right to destroy another school system. I don’t know how much more time he has on his contact but it is sure to be renewed by his Lackies. To file a law suit to try to keep the people he knows love him in office so he doesn’t have to possibly have people who don’t bow before him in office instead is pure hubris. The apparent illegality of this action–or merely the fact that it defies the law–seems to escape the notice of our town lawyer.

  1. You are the same guy on Facebook stirring the pot. If things are so bad run for office and do something constructive.

    Nope … He’s not the same guy… neither am I.
    Everyone knows Fishbnein is a useless tool.

  3. Dr. F is at the end of his run. It would be best if he goes on his own accord.

  4. School numbers speak for Fishbein’s achievements, or lack there of. Ridgewood went from top in the nation to below Elizabeth, NJ. What’s his next goal, to be beneath Newark? Not to mention, he’s tanked our school ranking while operating on a gazillion budget increase.

  5. Our school rankings have dropped dropped and dropped during Fishbeins leadership.

  6. It’s become a sanctuary school system for kids with special needs. People move here specifically for that. Meanwhile our high school can only produce four merit scholars, and less than 3% attend Ivy League schools. If he was a corporate CEO he would have been fired years ago.

  7. “Meanwhile our high school can only produce four merit scholars, and less than 3% attend Ivy League schools.”

    3% is a laughably low percentage given the financial resources he has available to him. Yes, if this were corporate America, he would have been FIRED long ago! Resign!

  8. #26 in latest Niche rankings of NJ high schools…

  9. Only ONE student was selected to go on to a military academy! That’s just as bad as only 4 merit scholars. If people don’t want to believe the ratings published in other sources, just look at a TRUE statistic–the total lack of colleges and other such sources who leap to grab a promising Ridgewood student before someone else grabs him/her. That basically means that it doesn’t mean a darn thing to anyone who counts if you graduated from Ridgewood. Colleges used to race each other to get an out-standing student. Our own daughter had a giant box filled with applications sent to her. How many students can say that now? (now it’s probably e-mails but I’m willing to bet that even they lack in both quantity and quality.) A student used to be told to apply to at least 4 schools–now even 10 isn’t enough.

  10. How many kids applied to ivy league schools and what was the acceptance and how many kids elected to go. That’s the real stat we should be discussing.

  11. I just looked at it, RHS acceptance rates are better than the rate of acceptance at those schools overall, so RHS kids are getting in at a higher rate than the rest of the country.
