BoE's Leon Gold Tells Salon Mag: “We are creating separate but equal school systems”
Gold speaks: the 2010 BoE Debate. Leon forced me to sit across from him in the front... forgot why.
Shy and soft-spoken Leon Gold (NOT!... luv ya, big guy) spoke to Salon magazine about the screwing that public schools here in Hoboken are getting at the hands of the state... as more public money gets diverted from public education for the expansion of Charters which do NOT represent the demographic of the school-age population in Hoboken.
No, they don't.
Not sure how shrinking-violet Leon got the interview, but it starts like this:
Well folks, as the mom of a child attending a Hoboken public school and thriving there, I am personally distressed by yet more money being diverted from our public schools, and more 'alternatives' being promoted by our leaders.
GA may not agree with Leon on all views expressed, but the flight from public schools I have witnessed myself is a self-fulfilling prophecy. We are headed the wrong way.
