what can we do to make our schools better? It's up to us to make a difference with our schools and city. Stop complaining about what's so bad about it and make a change.

I have graduated from this school in 1995 and I am ashamed that I had attended Weequahic. Most of their teachers were unprofessional, including a social studies teacher who had badmouthed me to the class behind my back, which I had confirmed with a classmate. I dont even remember her teaching social studies in the classroom, only the current events that had happened back then. The Newark school system was supposedly taken over by the state that year, but I don't feel that they had done a good job fixing the problems, because there are the same teachers that are still there although I believe that they should have been fired, and now, Im dealing with an incompetent staff member who deals with high school transcripts, who doesn't seem to understand the word "status" and doesn't return phone calls. The NJ state takeover of the schools did not work.

What a wonderful performance in the Halloween Parade last night in Toms River!! I am originally from Newark and was so pleased to see some of the good work being done by Newark students. The good news needs to get published too! So, my rating for this band's performance is a 4 STAR!
