A really terrific letter written here…
Dear Governor Cuomo and the State of New York,
When we moved into the Comsewogue School District 16 years ago, it never occurred to me that my kids would grow up in such an amazing school district. Honestly, I wasn’t thinking much past having to get my kid enrolled.
Fast forward to now. My kids have received education’s as different as they are. Teachers who have gone above and beyond to engage and teach. An administration who supported and included us in decisions and processes involving my children. A school board and a superintendent who are always available to talk and share and explain.
With that in mind, knowing that the children who are the future are being so excellently educated, how can you have the audacity, the unmitigated gall, to threaten to take Dr. Rella away from us and replace him with SOMEONE OF YOUR CHOICE simply because he stands for our kids!!!! Do you see the numbers? Do you read the statistics? Do you know how fantastic we, and hundreds of other Long Island districts, really are? Do you really think that firing Dr. Rella and sending your own lackey will stop us from fighting for our kids???
You can’t possibly come close to knowing what’s best for our kids. You, who have never stepped foot into one of our buildings. You, who have never spoken to one of our children. You know nothing about our superintendent, except that he’s standing for our kids. What have you done for our kids lately, Governor Cuomo?
