FIRST REPORT: Lakewood Board of Education member rescinds his resignation, again

The Lakewood Board of Education who recently suddenly resigned, for a second time, has again rescinded his resignation.

TLS was first to report about Rodriguez’s resignation.

But like last time he resigned, he again rescinded it.

“Please be advised that Herbert Rodriguez has withdrawn his resignation,” the Board said. “Mr. Rodriguez, a parent of a Lakewood High School student, and a proud resident of Lakewood Township looks forward to continuing to serve all the students of Lakewood.”

Rodriguez originally resigned for a second time because he claimed he could no longer make believe everything will be okay with regards to the Districts’s financial woes.

No reason was given for his decision to return.

  1. Knee jerk resignations are not the answer to the district’s woes. Heriberto you are better than this and the Hispanic community needs your support.

  2. And by the way, Mr. Rodriguez, your rubber stamping of my demotion, to teach new subjects at a new school with new responsibilities, after 17 years of teaching the same course at the same school, will not have its desired effect. The unexpected workload on the cusp of my summation brief due September 13 might will delay the decision in the school funding case, should I necessitate for an extension, but it will not stop me.

  3. I am glad he decided not to resign. He needs to stand and fight for what is fair for ALL students in Lakewood. Hopefully this time he sees something he doesn’t like he speaks up. Good for him. Hopefully he is successful and starts making the changes that need to be made.
