Urges New Jersey Department of Education to Conduct Feasibility Studies on 104 Recommended Mergers
TRENTON – August 18, 2014 – It was nearly 20 years ago that former Gov. Christie Whitman called for a non-binding referendum that would allow the state to force some of the state’s smaller school districts to merge.
That vote never took place, and the state is still home to more than 600 school districts. But the state did direct executive county schools superintendents to develop a plan to eliminate smaller school districts that do not offer grades pre-K or K-12. Recommendations were submitted by March 2010.

Cognizant of Tim O’Brien’s writing prowess and knowing Ward Hall to be a top showman fed my eagerness to review this book published by Casa Flamingo Literary Arts, LLC. It was well worth the read. I consider both these individuals to be friends of mine; we met in the carnival world. Spending time in Ward and Chris’ house trailer always created warm memories and always a pleasant reception. We usually met at fairs throughout the country. Although Ward and I have chatted many times, this book disclosed some of the trials and woes that he successfully hid from me.
