Reader Asks: Will Barnegat School Board Cut Middle School Sports?

Is it true that the Barnegat School Board is going to cut all sports from the Middle School?

@frankresident...please don't comment if you don't know the facts. Obviously, you aren't a teacher or related to any teachers or you would know that teachers do not work part time. They work a full day and then come home to do lesson plans, correct papers, etc...in long run, possibly more hours than you or you partners. Secondly, Teachers Convention is only 2 days and that is all they are off for. Teachers do not have "every other day off". Total exaggeration. Lets keep to the facts and stop teacher bashing unless you think you could do a better job for what they get paid and the lack of support they receive especially in regards to the added pressure of student standardized test performance. Many students don't do homework or don't have parents who are even home when they get home. Schools are like daycare centers in many people's eyes. I'm fairly certain you wouldn't even have a job if you didn't have decent teachers who were personally vested in your success so lets show some respect and appreciation. The job is not getting any easier from what I understand.

@Laura and others, I would suggest you read the law when referring to what we are allowed to provide. This is not a pick and choose thing when it comes to transportation. Our district carefully reviewed every aspect of the town's transportation needs a few years back and we had to "eliminate" all courtesy buses. Those changes were instituted under the past Superintendent and 3 Board President's ago. This is NOT a new issue.http://www.state.nj.us/education/parents/transportation.htm

Incorrect. I apologize that the truth hurts. Facts are facts. @concernedparent.... You should be, Barnegat system is ridiculous.
