Reader says People are willing to squeeze and financially suffer in order to get into a good school district

high density housing Ridgewood

No, I am not saying that only poor people with lots of kids will move in. Very few apartments are being allowed for low income, and that basically means an income lower than the average Ridgewood taxpayer. Many current Ridgewood residents could qualify. I am saying that, as has been noted before, many houses go on sale at Graduation time and the sale sign is posted near a Congratulations lawn sign. Many potential renters will find these apartments (at regular price) cheaper than either renting or buying in Ridgewood and the 2 bedrooms can handle at least 2 kids and the 3 bedrooms more. The various garden apartments in town have many children in them now.Though the quality of education has declined drastically since we moved in, it is still better than many other towns and Counties can offer. People are willing to squeeze and financially suffer in order to get into a good school district. The first built will have astronomical rents but the more that are built, the more the rents cannot stay that high. They will be reasonable for people with children. The high school is seeing the last of the lower birth rate children. Our lower grades are seeing a larger amount of children currently. Just drive around town and notice all the baby toys and strollers!

  1. How can this be? Gwennie Hauck, from the heights of her mansion, told us that no one with children would live in a …..dare I even say it…..apartment.

  2. This is the time for the school board and police to become fervent and consistent in tracking down any situation where children are living alone or too many in one unit or lying about living with a relative. We cannot afford to educate children who are not bona fide residents with at least one adult living in the same place. The stories abound. Maybe something can be done before the next school year begins that would help with this. Other towns do it. We are not a charity.

  3. It’s only going to get worse. There has always been a number of kids who game the system by pretending to live with a relative in Ridgewood, but really catch the bus to towns with crappier schools. The reason it will get worse is because many of the people in the education system who administer the enforcement of keeping outside kids out of the local schools are liberals, and in the last couple of years, the whole open borders and pro illegal immigration has become one of the biggest agenda items for them. These people are turning a blind eye out of party loyalty.
