  1. Too bad he will be in Lakewood.

    I was hoping that he would be in Trenton tomorrow at 1:00 when I testify before the Joint Legislative Committee on Public School as to the need for a charter that can accommodate our population. Maybe an elected official in Trenton will have the the time to listen to the details of how to legally provide free education to our children, certainly none in Lakewood has.

  2. To: A. Lang
    Where do you get FREE?? Someone will be putting money into it and that will be the tax payers. Why should I have to pay for Private School for you I had to go to Public School.

  3. Why should one American have the duty to get an education while the other be denied that duty because the school refuses to make an accommodation? When a huge portion of the K-12 population, perhaps ten percent of NJ by 2030, cannot get an education because elected officials are too narrow minded, or I should say, too arrogant to explore a vision from someone down in the trenches, to see beyond the brick-and-mortar campus of the public school, our state, nay the future of our nation, is imperiled. America will not survive when its population does not learn its history, the obligations of citizenship, and the salutary arts of reading, writing and mathematics, so that its future citizens develop skills to discern fact from fiction, truth from error, and virtue from self-interest.

  4. So if I’m catholic can I get benefit of this also, by sending my kids to a catholic private school to accommodate my belief??? That would be great, I’m a tax payer who will have the choice to get private religious education from the government! Looking forward for more updates

  5. There is no reason why a student in a parochial school, at home or in a yeshiva cannot be served with distance education.

    Several state laws explicitly include home school, private school, and sectarian school students eligible for their state or for district virtual education systems.

    For example the Missouri statute says: “Nothing in this section shall preclude a private, parochial, or home school student residing within a school district offering virtual courses or virtual programs from enrolling.” § 162.1250 R.S.Mo

    Florida, South Carolina, Mississippi, and other states have similar statutes. In fact a yeshiva in California uses the (free) Kaplan Charter School to run all their secular studies. New Jersey is way behind its sister states, yet it probably has the greatest need.

    Although virtual education has mixed reviews (blended programs are as good as the traditional classroom), the vast majority children of Lakewood do not have the luxury of choosing between a real classroom or an alternative education, but have to settle for none at all.

  6. I don’t understand what A. Lang is talking about when he says he wants Trenton to provide legal “free” education to our children. We have that… it is called public school. If that is not good enough and you want something different, you can pay for it like the rest of us.

    Should every catholic child get to attend and get bussed to Mon Don or CBA for free? NO!!! Where would that money come from? We are taxed enough.
