Ridgewood schools were ranked nationally in the 1980s and 1990s. No more. As the “CEO” of a school board with a $110 mm annual budget, 10 “offices” and 500 employees, he has overseen the demise of our schools over the past decade. The “product” is in secular decline apart from very niche & expensive “special needs” education. Surely with a budget like that, we can attract world class & innovative leaders and educators that can improve our schools? Instead we get weather updates from Fishbein. If he’s so great, let him destroy another school system instead of ours.

  1. And the bucks Stops ?

    not here in nanny state of Ridgewood.

    Seems no one employed here is responsible for any deliverables…
    outside of taxpayers quarterly high local town tax payments.very sad and frustrating ..realtors have to love the turnover..

  2. Realtors keep telling the same lie, and the mommies that overpaid for their houses here with their husband’s money have to keep propagating the same lie to justify living here. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it , people will eventually come to believe it. Until we admit we gave a problem, nothing will change.

  3. When a district’s main focus becomes it teachers instead of its students you have a real problem. We have a real problem.
