Letters to the Editor/The Star-Ledger

When I was a principal in Franklin Lakes and we were about to make a major educational decision at a superintendent-principals meeting for the school district, before the vote, I used to stop everyone and make the following statement: “Before we cast our votes, stop and think of the implications of what we are about to do. If we vote to move forward on this, where will we be three years from now, five years from now?” Each and every time I said this, the vote outcome was reversed.
In regard to the governor’s higher-education reorganization plan, the restructuring of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey must be separate from the recommendation to have Rowan University absorb the Rutgers-Camden campus.

Monumental decisions such as this must take more time than Gov. Chris Christie’s July 1 timetable would allow.
