” Ridgewood parents and taxpayers deserve world class administrators who can provide inspirational leadership for those 500 staff, 1,500 students and ten buildings. Think about this as well: the $110 million BOE budget implies $73,333 in budget per student per year. And yet how little of that actually goes towards educating our children for the challenges they will face as they go out and take on the world? You REA thugs have perverted what was once a “Tradition of Excellence.” You seem to think your mere presence means excellence, when in fact it takes creative, inspirational leadership and hard work.”

  1. I don’t know where the reader gets a district population of 1500, but it’s closer to 6000. That would make the cost per pupil around 18,300.

  2. Yes that sounds about right. Maybe just a high school last 1500 students.

  3. 6,000 students in local public schools in a Village of 25,692? Where lots of kids attend private schools? So you’re saying a full 23% of all residents in Ridgewood are students in our public schools?

  4. Time to move out.i told u all back When it was going to hundred million. Now look enjoy.
