TRENTON – State Senator Ronald L. Rice, D-Essex, the Co-Chair of the Joint Legislative Committee on the Public Schools, said today that the State should look into the lack of textbooks for urban students, and said that he would be willing to introduce legislation if necessary to require schools to purchase enough textbooks so that each student can get their own.
“I’ve been raising this issue for a number of years, because I hear from irate parents who want to know why their children have not been issued textbooks,” said Senator Rice, D-Essex. “It doesn’t make sense on one hand to expect our kids to do well in school, and on the other not give them the tools they need to achieve classroom success. In my opinion, a ‘thorough and efficient’ education, as guaranteed by our State Constitution, should come with textbooks that students can bring home with them to do homework and study for exams.”

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
