East Ramapo rally calls for superintendent to resign
The failure of state lawmakers to pass a bill appointing a state monitor for the embattled East Ramapo school district has many calling for district Superintendent Joel Klein to step down.
Parents and students held a rally Sunday morning calling for his resignation.
Parents say Klein and the Orthodox Jewish member-controlled board have been ignoring their concerns.
Parent Romel Alvarez cites multiple state reports that detail a broken school district, leaving many students behind, especially those who speak Spanish.
State lawmakers say the earliest they will be able to resume debate on the school monitor bill is during the next legislative session, which begins in January.
