My daughter went through the system to 9th grade. She could not function at Dwight Morrow High School. She graduated from Teaneck High School. I raised my sister's two children. The summer before entering the 9th grade, my nephew informed me that he thought he would not graduate if he had to go to DMHS. I separated brother and sister by sending him to live with his Father's brother in South Plainfield.
She was a bright energetic child that we thought would survive anywhere. She was groomed for the Academy @Englewood. She was accepted. I later withdrew her and sent her to a private boarding school in Pennsylvania. (and no, she was not pregnant) Her experiences at the Academy @Englewood
are not a good story for this page.
I have 3 grandchildren. The 13 year old will be entering DMHS in the fall. The 4 year old will be entering Quarles for kindergarten. The two year old will hopefully get a spot at Vincent K. Tibbs Child Development Center. I have a vested interest in doing whatever I can to improve public education in my hometown. My grandchildren are the best reason I know.
