Walcott throws Jewish Children in Monsey Under The Bus
The vast majority of children living in East Ramapo are Jewish. The Jewish population in East Ramapo is exploding with new developments with new residents paying humongous property taxes. The majority of the property taxes are school taxes.
So its natural that parents of Non-Public School kids that are paying taxes want to vote in their own board, to make sure that the majority is well represented.
But the anti-Semites whose children pay zero in school taxes don't want Jews running the board that got elected in a democratic election!
So they came up with a scheme that would allow a monitor that would have veto power to oversee the board, in effect disqualifying an election!
What good is it to have an election and then appoint a monitor that has veto power....??????????
Crazy isn't it?
Not if you are an immigrant that snuck thru the boarders and attends a school in East Ramapo, .... then what you do is .....throw out the votes of the Jews by appointing a monitor and have the Jews pay the salaries of the staff anyway thru property taxes! ...
The East Ramapo school board said it’s “surprised” that a state panel is recommending a monitor with veto power to oversee the school board, saying that had not been part of the discussions.
Yehuda Weissmandl, the board’s president, said the board has “worked diligently over the last year” to improve the troubled district and believed that it and the panel’s leader, Dennis Walcott, were on the same page.
“We had begun to work together. We were building a consensus for action on underlying problems,” Weissmandl said in a statement.
“We are surprised because Mr. Walcott, who spent a great deal of time with us in recent weeks, spoke to these very issues and seemed intent on avoiding a repeat of the past.
“The final report to the Regents, however, went in a different direction.”
Earlier this year, the state Legislature reached an impasse over giving a state monitor veto power over the board.
But that was Walcott’s top recommendation Monday. He said he was confident that the Legislature would come around; Senate Republicans have opposed giving a monitor such broad power.
“We are serious about working with the board and SED and pursuing the legislation that’s required,” Walcott told the board. “We think as a result of this package, the district will be a lot healthier in serving the students of the district.”
But Weissmandl said the push for a monitor would only tear open the wounds that the sides have tried to close as they fight over the resources for public and private-school students.
“These proposals are likely to reprise the divisions and strife we saw in the district last year,” his statement continued. “This is indeed unfortunate because we had begun the process of reconciliation in East Ramapo.”
He added, “What we need in East Ramapo is a laser focus on the needs of children and reconciliation as a community and improved cooperation at all levels. As we always have, we will continue to work diligently toward these goals.”
