East Ramapo Board Meeting Cancelled

As tensions grow between residents and the board in the East Ramapo School District, nearly 200 people arrived at the school board’s meeting on Tuesday night, a majority there to continue pushing for the resignation of Superintendent Joel Klein. At the time the meeting was set to begin, only four members of the board had arrived, leading to the anticipated meeting being cancelled. According to officials at least five members are needed to hold a meeting. Board President Yehuda Weissmandl apologized on Wednesday and stated that several members contacted the clerk last minute informing they could not attend. Seating was increased for the rise in attendees, though Weissmandl stated that the district is working to arrange holding the meetings in the gymnasium to accommodate everyone. Parents and activists have been protesting for months, at the meetings as well as at Klein’s home, after he made comments many found disrespectful toward the large Hispanic population in the Rockland district, which he has since apologized for.
