GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The pressing NJ problem of “varsity letters”?

*** begin quote ***

S-2398/A-3879 (Bateman, Allen, Greenstein, Singleton/Ciattarelli, Auth, Space) – Requires school district to adopt policy allowing students in grades 9 through 12 who participate in certain interscholastic extracurricular activities to earn varsity letter

*** end quote ***

So the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee has time to legislate on “varsity letters”, but can’t solve the fiscal problems.

Doesn’t anyone see the folly in this?

Another reason that the Gooferment Skrules should be privatized. Really privatized.

I believe that it could take 40 years — 20 to transfer them to private entities and another 20 to reduce the Gooferment funding to zero — but imagine how free we’d be when the Gooferment can’t propagandize the the children.

  1. @khurt: I’m not saying that anyone should or should not get a “letter”. (Although, I’d say the “letter” is superfluous, since what she learned — pride in achievement, self-discipline, and self-assurance — is inside and doesn’t need a letter.) My gripe is with the politicians and bureaucrats, who “solve” “trivial” problems of their own making, all the while avoiding and ignoring the serious ones of the day. Not the least of which are the fiscal crisis, state debt, underfunded too generous pensions, and unfunded mandates made on the State and made by the State. I think that your daughter’s deserves praise and recognition; just not at the behest of Trenton. They should have your daughter teach them some of what she learned. Dona Nobis Pacem.

  2. My daughter will get a varisy letter (Montgomery Township) for four years of marching band. That’s 2-3 hours of practice every week of the school year and every day for three weeks during August. And the hours spent marching in the cold, rain, and heat during every high school football game.
