1) Superintendent Klein in Trouble Again!
The superintendent of East Ramapo school district has faced protesters calling for his resignation because of comments he made about Latino students. You might think that now he would be more careful with his words, but you would be wrong. When the Spring Valley NAACP wrote to him politely requesting clarification of his comments, he wrote back a less-than-polite response, and sent a copy to the state. Well, the NYSED fiscal monitor found there was cause for concern in both Dr. Klein’s comments and his tone with the NAACP. He is now requiring the district to show how they are providing education to English Language Learners.

2) Rally tonight – Oct 21 at 7 PM
The comments made by the superintendent of schools have brought into question the districts commitment to serving all of its students, and even its understanding of the law that requires it to serve all equally.
Please join us in a rally right before the next regularly scheduled school board meeting. We will once again call for Dr. Klein to resign. As the districts highest paid employee, he should be held to the highest standard.
