Video: Hoboken Board of Education Votes 6-3 NOT to Drop Hola/NJDOE Lawsuit--

A number of interesting observations as we watch a Board trustee (Peter Biancamano) make a motion to stop the Hola lawsuit. This is followed by a second to the motion by Trustee John Madigan. Next we see Trustee Montgomery call for a vote. What follows is part frustration, exasperation, sarcasm, and accusations of "poor Boardsmanship" as the Board members associated with the Kids First/Reach Higher, Hoboken political group are forced to publicly vote on a motion to stop the expensive, multi-year lawsuit against the Hola Dual Language Charter School. Best to watch it for yourself. The final vote was 6-3 with all 'Kids First/Reach Higher, Hoboken' board members voting to NOT stop the lawsuit...

Motion by Peter Biancamano, second by John Madigan.
Final Resolution: Motion Fails
Yes: Peter Biancamano, John Madigan, Britney Montgomery
No: Sharyn Angley, Jennifer Evans, Leon Gold, Irene Sobolov, Monica Stromwall, Thomas Kluepfel
