Dr. Kossack is a wonderful superintendent and has done nothing but improve Little Silver Schools during her tenure. She is professional, smart, fair, and fiscally minded. The suit is nonsense and is nothing but a waste of time, energy, and money. It's so sad that angry and/or crazy people can make false accusations and cause such significant damage to others' lives. I have suffered from the devastation of false accusations and know the stress it can cause. Even when you can prove you did nothing wrong, the doubt lingers and the effects are seemingly neverending. Dr. Kossack, Mr. Morolda, and the LS BOE, you have my full support.

Little Silver was a desirable place to live not just because it's a shore town, but also because of its education, BEFORE Kossack arrived. She has done some good things but truth of the matter is, a low student to teacher ratio, is desirable no matter what school you attend! And in this town, a class of 16, not only has a teacher, but also a teacher's aid, at least 1-3! In my grahmer school classes, I had 30-35 students and only one teacher and all was well. Now Carolyn Kossack, beng a professional woman, should know that her personal life should always be separated from the professional life. An old saying, "you don't **** where you eat comes to mind," no matter what sexual persuasion she is. Truth of the matter is, if she was a man, and allegedly committed that same offense, I'd be just as concerned. I can't say the law suite is total BS, no one can. Only the case will be the deciding factor and hopefully the truth will come out. I agree with Peter, since the Lord has been taken out of our schools, things have gone downhill. It seems, as a Society, we don't know right from wrong anymore. But that is for another discussion.

My seventh grade social studies teacher at Markham Place back in the 1970s called Little Silver "Small Change" I can only imagine what he thinks about the mandatory violin instruction for third graders, wireless microphones so all 16 students can hear the teacher and teacher's aid, among other luxuries

What does the six digit Manager of Curriculum do for the other 50 weeks in the year? Why can't she be shared with Rumson, Shrewsbury, Fair Haven, Oceanport, Monmouth Beach, Eatontown, etc etc?
