Ridgewood School District Superintendent Daniel Fishbein took the high road and told the Ridgewood News , “Allegations or accusations made against any person are not the same as findings of guilt,”
“Based on the information we have at this point, the district has decided to wait for this matter to be resolved by the legal system,” Fishbein continued. “When and if guilt is determined or someone’s presence is a detraction to the educational process and action is necessary, please be assured all necessary statutes and codes will be followed.” ( https://www.northjersey.com/news/Superintendent_Ridgewood_teacher_wont_be_suspended_while_facing_shoplifting_charge.html )
