Bid to Impose Monitor on East Ramapo School Board Meets Resistance
Ellen Jaffee, a Democratic Assembly member from Rockland County who is one of the bill’s lead sponsors, said that installing a monitor to oversee the school board “has nothing to do with who they are in terms of their culture or religious background.” Ms. Jaffee said the bill was “clearly supported by a large sector of the Jewish community.” It has been endorsed by the American Jewish Committee, as well as the New York City Bar Association, the N.A.A.C.P. and others.
