The NJ State DOE Report Cards are out and our kids here in Cranford are just simply brilliant, conscientious and diligent!

It is wonderful that our precious little snowflakes are doing so well. I’ve long been of the opinion that smarter kids outweigh excellent teachers in setting a reputation for a district, although I’m sure Cranford has some good teachers (our little one isn’t in the system yet so we don’t yet know firsthand).

However, after having difficulty in getting the fresh faces in the workforce to do a whole lot of actual work (and I’m not the only one seeing this), I’d like to see the schools have a benchmark in preparing kids for the world of work.

Of interest: 85% of the funds in 2007 came from within the town.
