  1. I don’t know anything about this but if it didn’t affect the community, then it is a private matter and should remain private.

  2. Agreed. Let it be.

  3. You silly boobs. It happened in a PUBLIC SCHOOL and was decided by PUBLICLY elected officials.

    So that makes it PUBLIC not private.

    By weeks end every student in the village, above age 12, will know who these two students are, if they don’t already.

    It never ceases to amaze me at the preciousness of some of our citizens.

  4. No, let’s discuss the matter & figure out how to use it to criticize the BOE & the Administration.

  5. These are minors. It is private.

  6. It did affect the community. If, as I surmise, these were 2 of the students caught selling drugs at RHS in a sting operation, then this IS a community matter.

    If the parents of these students decide to sue the district over the expulsions, that makes it a financial matter for the community in addition to the legal and moral issues involved.

    If the parent of a student who may have been approached to purchase any illegal substances believes it is warranted then that parent may also sue the school district.

    Get the picture. People’s actions in a public place are always going to be a community matter. If they were selling drugs out of their home, then I hardly think the BOE would be involved in this matter, but they weren’t. It happened within our school buildings.

    We can’t just shove it under the rug. That’s a big problem in Ridgewood. Our first instinct seems always to try to hide any problem that may reflect negatively on us. This is not the American way.

  7. The only reason students would get expelled was if they engaged in behaviors like drug sale, drug use, physically attacked a teacher, another student, etc. We are not talking about something minor. Wouldn’t that be the kind of behavior that does indeed affect the community by endangering other students, who are certainly members of our community? I think we all have the right to know. I have a child in each level of schooling here (elementary, middle and high) and would like to be aware of such events.

  8. Amen.

  9. whats up with this PJ some body who is connected in town had there kid kicked out of school good riddence i hate these brats ! you must have hit a nerve!

  10. 8:09

    What if it was your kid? Would you want all the malcontents who read this blog to know of your woe? Would that be a positive thing for your family?

  11. i love it PJ so who is the little bastard?

  12. “Would you want all the malcontents who read this blog to know of your woe? Would that be a positive thing for your family?”

    Tis far better than having the malcontents on the flog having this discussion. BTW, we don’t know who this family is so we are not discussing them personally, by name. You do realize that people have a right to free speech. And yes, there are those who constantly harp against such freedoms. Nice to meet you.

  13. What good comes of it if the matter is discussed on this blog? Rumor (gossip) moves fast on the internet.

    People who think that they are wonderful parents will feel free to criticize the parents. The usual group will take the opportunity criticize the school.

  14. Yes, 2:44am, and you no doubt will cast the first stone?

    Enjoy your Sunday.

  15. yes if it was my kid getting kicked out of school would be the least of his or her worries!

  16. hey 809 I believe “all the malcontents” just got kicked out of school

  17. 932 the kids obviouslyy cast the first stone thats why they got kicked out …btw in this town with all your political pull they must be some real winners

  18. yes letys stick up fore the dirt bags and let them ruin school for all the serious kids …no thank you!

  19. because your trying to protect someone connected your shifting the discussion as always. The post is simple 2 kids got kicked out of school ,defending their bad behavior is pathetic and defending yourself as a parent is even more selfish and pathetic oh your poor public image what will the neighbors think . I ‘ll tell you what they realy think they are all relieved that you good for nothing kids wont be near theirs …sorry your kids suck but its and its your problem now and not the schools …

  20. 10:33

    You really must be an ignorant person to make such a statement. Do you know any kids who go to school? Do you know how many great kids live in Ridgewood? You sound like Ebenezer Scrooge without the catharsis. What a lousy life you must have. Such a pity that you find joy in another’s misery.

  21. Hey 4:58 not all kids are great kids. My kids and many others have a name for them. These troublemakers and spoiled brats are called “Juvies.”

    My child won’t go to the HS because such spoilers spoil the atmosphere for all others. At least they are being kicked out. Trust me, there are a few more left. Let’s hope they get caught and removed as well.

  22. You are missing 932’s point — no one said juvie snotty brats should not be booted from school and into a detention center — but the adult snotty brats who need to learn and publish the names of these minors are pathetic.

  23. actualy 800 I know for a fact that PJ has the names and thought it unnecessary to post them whats the matter worried about the nieghbors again ?

  24. Oh and BTW why are there always so many voices from cottage place posting on here ,the flog not working out for you?

  25. Big deal that PJ knows the names. Lots of people know the names. If PJ publishes the names he will be in big trouble.

  26. The school is dealing with the problem by expelling the students. We do not need to know the names.

  27. the parents who are protecting there public image and dont care about there kids to begin with are the problem ,I dont realy care about your short bus brat ,but after reading all the stupid protentious bull ,you kids sound like a bunch of real losers no one will miss them …hey dont be sad this is new jersey they can always run for public office…

  28. How snide of 5:45 AM to comment, “No, let’s discuss the matter & figure out how to use it to criticize the BOE & the Administration.”

    What, are we feeling a bit defensive at Cottage Place?

    The poster is a prime specimen of a sycophant. One who can’t tell when the BOE does something good or bad.

    They just have a knee-jerk reaction to come to its aid regardless of right or wrong.

    Thus, the public disdain for such intellectual incompetence by mindless defenders of the BOE.

  29. “Thus, the public disdain for such intellectual incompetence by mindless defenders of the BOE.”

    I disagree with the use of the word “intellectual” in this sentence. But I very much like “incompetence by mindless defenders”…

    If, however, you happen to find a true intellectual at Cottage Place or among its defenders, please advise us all accordingly.

  30. to 6:36 – “short bus brat?”

    that’s a horrible thing to say.

    why are you denigrating Special Education students? is that what you think of special needs students? that they are drug dealers and brats?

    you should watch what you say. especially if you have children. (i hope not)
