Lakewood High School students to head to Trenton to Protest Inadequate Funding

An “organized and peaceful protest” by Lakewood High School students in Trenton is in the planning stages for this week, to protest the State’s failure to provide adequate funding, and a long-term solution to Lakewood’s educational struggle

The protest, planned for Wednesday, will include stops at the Department of Education office, as well as the offices of the Senate President and Assembly Majority Leader. A schedule is still in formation.

TLS has learned that 10 buses of Lakewood High School students will travel to the protest, along with supervision and staff.

The cost of buses is being undertaken by attorney Michael Inzebuch, who graduated from Lakewood High School in 1983.

Board President Barry Iann and Inzelbuch have communicated regarding the protest.

This protest comes after Friday’s protest at the Lakewood High School, participated by hundreds of students.

  1. Finally a protest in Trenton!
    But why is it only high school students going?
    It’s about time the vaad has all of us join in at the protest and cause a major impact there.

  2. After all, I’m sure many in Trenton have by now heard about the unique situation in Lakewood with the majority non public school kids.
    So what kind of impression does it make there when only 10 buses of public school kids show up, and none from the majority non-public?

  3. How about some of the orthodox community going along? Really, I’m some of us should go , as the broad problem effects us as well. So let fight together

  4. Please keep us posted with details. This is an opportunity to join together for maximum impact on elected state officials regarding Lakewood’s educational needs.

  5. Orderly protesting might work [it cant hurt] but 2 and 3 is absolutely right why shouldn’t anybody from the frum community go too ?

  6. Why would non public school children protest? The understanding when you enroll in a private school is that it is self funded, not paid for with public tax money. What am I missing?

  7. Tim, you are missing the fact that there are mandated services by the state for all school children, including business and special ed, and when it comes to funding, the state acts as if they don’t exist.

    • So the private schools are traditionally subsidized by govt? Not being sarcastic just did not realize. I saw catholic high school Mayer dei closing due to finances and never saw them ask for state to step in?
