This is getting fun. Can you guess how NJ officials will react to the news that the former superintendent of Paterson violated state and local law by paying a friend $73,000 as a consultant’s fee?
Here’s our guess:
1) Legislators will froth at the mouth and emit lengthy legislation prohibiting superintendents from writing checks to their best buddies.
2) The DOE will stomp and scowl about irresponsible administrators and then disgorge a mountain of regulations for local school boards to rubber-stamp.
3) Local school boards will moan and groan about new mandates, and then hold a public meeting to vote on new statutes that they are required to approve.
Let’s all do the hokie-pokie!
