Does Rutgers Pay Too Much to Fired Coaches, Athletic Directors, and Academic Administrators?

Does Rutgers pay too much to fired coaches, athletic directors, and academic administrators? 

Everyone loves a good college football game. Last season (2018), the Rutgers Scarlet Knights record in the Big Ten Conference was a dismal 1-11. And this year does not look much better. Yeah, Rutgers is in the same league with some heavy hitters like Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan. But, ...

New Jersey Transit A National Disgrace?

Nutley Public Schools: Overcrowded, Exhausted and Obsolete

October 22, 2019

The Nutley School District has long suffered the consequences of reactionary policy decisions.

Charles Kucinski on the Overcrowding Issue in Nutley Public Schools

1. First and foremost, the ...

Charles Kucinski on the Vaping Problem

Vaping has become a national concern and Nutley is not immune to this problem.

It is my opinion that it is the Board’s ...

Walker Middle School. Board of Education members provide our email ...

Charles Kucinski on School Security

School Security

It has been a year since the Nutley Board of Education first introduced armed security officers at JHWMS and NHS.  It is my opinion that the School Safety Officer (SSO) has proven to be a good addition to our security program not only for the day to day benefits the position brings to the District, but also the extension of their presence at after-school ...
