I have been a resident and taxpayer in East Brunswick for 18 years. Three of my children have graduated from East Brunswick High School. I was reasonably happy with the education they received. One special needs child attended school out of the district and I appreciated having that option available to us.
I believe that parents have the right and responsibility to seek the best education for their children. Today, East Brunswick is blessed with several fine options for public school education, one of which is the Hatikvah International Charter School. Why are two or three rabidly vocal detractors allowed to derail and hold hostage the plans of this fine school, Hatikvah?
Why are these people allowed, with the apparent approval and encouragement of the presiding officer of the town council, an extremely young and childish acting Mr. Michael Hughes, who should have instead served as a neutral moderator, to delay and delay and run up legal fees paid by taxpayers such as myself.
Surely we can find another use for the $100,000 already spent on these frivolous proceedings.
Three of my grandchildren attend Hatikvah and they love it. One grandchild has difficulty in large groups and the staff and teachers have made every accommodation for him. He is now one of the star pupils and a joy to his teacher.
This delay is unacceptable. We voters and taxpayers deserve better in East Brunswick.
