Letter: Support the 2010-2011 Spending Plan

Friday, 14 May 2010 00:00

Teachers and parents – in fact, everyone in this community – should share a common goal: the best education possible for children.

Our school board has carefully crafted a budget with that goal in mind, while staying fiscally responsible. The proposed budget continues to provide this community’s children with strong academic programs and a wide range of extracurricular activities, while spending tax dollars prudently on only those programs that are absolutely necessary.

Hicksville residents have a chance on May 18 to vote for the biggest bargain in Hicksville, in Proposition 3 for the Hicksville Gregory Museum. For a mere $3.50 per family per year we have a state-chartered museum that focuses on serving the educational needs of our Hicksville school district free of charge, while serving 40 other school districts who pay.

Letter: NYS Needs to Address Concerns

Friday, 30 April 2010 00:00

The most insane aspect of the manner in which education is financed is that it’s an investment that, from a strictly financial point of view, has a return that’s paltry at best. High taxes (to pay for things like public schools), depressed wages and unaffordable housing are driving the young off Long Island.

Honestly, what percentage of the Class of 2010 will be living and/or working in the district in which they attended school 10 years from now? Just go on an alumni website and see how many of your classmates still live anywhere near their high school.

To address the issue of school budgets without addressing the issues of jobs, housing, wages, immigration and other taxes is akin to a doctor ignoring a severed limb as he attempts to determine why his patient’s blood pressure is rapidly falling. Still, until we can address these concerns, students in the classroom need to be educated. We can’t put them in some kind of suspended animation deep freeze.

The basic curriculum and enrichment programs (like field trips) need to be sustained, otherwise in 2020 our graduates will be young adults who are less educated than their parents looking at the prospect of having kids who will be even less educated.

If local school districts can’t obtain aid from a New York State facing bankruptcy, and a federal government heading in the same direction, perhaps they should consider loans from overseas banks and governments.

Calls for Conference Committees to Resolve Budget Differences, Stop Political Games

“I, and many of my colleagues, have become frustrated by the lack of action on finalizing a budget. That is why we called upon Senate and Assembly leaders to immediately convene conference committees in order to hammer out our remaining differences and get a responsible plan approved.

Days of Remembrance

April 11 was Holocaust Remembrance Day, part of a week-long remembrance established by the U.S. Congress to never forget the victims of the Nazi Holocaust which the Nazis called “The Final Solution” to exterminate all European Jews and other unacceptable groups. During and before World War II, over six million Jews were murdered in Nazi death camps such as Treblinka and Auschwitz. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. is asking Americans to honor veterans who defeated the Nazis and liberated the death camps. On Sunday, April 25 the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County in Glen Cove is having a Walk To Remember the Children of the Holocaust. Their website is www.Holocaust-Nassau.org.
