Everyone's a Critic

I decided I am a great critic.  My services can be useful to anyone seeking consistent, thorough, honest critiques of everything under the sun from school systems to hemorrhoids.   No topic affecting human well-being should be ignored, undermined nor stifled by the powers that be.

 

For example, Montclair Public School System, and the budget that supports it, is a topic that warrants open discussion.  Residents once flocked to this town from New York City because it was…

This land is our land

I love the Cake song “The land of race car ya yas”.  The singer says we live in a land where large fuzzy dice hang proudly like testicles from rear view mirrors … Tons of fabulous visuals.  So visualize this if you will:

 

My town is the land of parental ya yas, the land where kids can say what they want, the land where small people have big opinions and tell you to stick your snack where the sun don’t shine.

 

My town is the land of no more bullying, or more…

The Leftovers

The Leftovers

I accidentally got a book mailed to my old inner city school that they renovated and re-staffed, but I didn’t call to see if it was there or if anyone had picked it up.  That school was way on the eastside where no one could find it, off Eastern Avenue and towards Essex.  It was around the corner from the Eastpoint Mall where they had haunted houses every year and a new hibachi to-go grill restaurant.  It was two miles south of North Point Boulevard where if you…

How a Sleepover Invitation Helped Us Become The "Cool" House

My two eldest daughters, ages 9 and 7 just began a new school last January after having migrated over from an "expensive-as-heck" private school 45 minutes from the house. Thankfully, both girls have rock solid self-esteem and had few problems adjusting to what seems like a whole new galaxy. Each has made many friends, and both get invited to their fair share of birthday parties, the true marker of how well today’s children fit in.



Recently, my 9 year-old received an invitation to… Continue

Furloughs in Hawaii Schools

http://hubpages.com/hub/Hawaiischoolfurloughs



Hawaii’s Governor Lingle pledged her support to the No Child Left Behind Program and then cut seventeen days of public school instruction from the school year.

Hawaii already lags behind England, Germany and Japan schools with an average of only 180 days of… Continue
