Dozens of people protest cuts by East Ramapo school board

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of angry East Ramapo parents protested last night over budget cuts and some proposed changes made by the school board.

On loud speakers, signs and petitions, dozens of concerned parents of children in East Ramapo Schools made their voices heard outside the administrative building in Spring Valley.

Protesters say the school board isn't diverse enough and they're upset with a proposal to replace Pedro Santana, a popular administrator.

Parents also voiced concerns about overcrowding, despite record-high taxes, mismanagement and overall test scores.

News 12 did reach out to the members of the East Ramapo School Board, so far have received no comment.
