Five Towns Letters to the Editor
(Page 3 of 4)

Another vote for Marcus

To the Editor:
It seems that national elections are not the only contentious ones. Since moving to the Five Towns I have observed how school board elections bring out the worst in some people.
That is too bad because we should all be concerned about electing the candidates who will work for the benefit of all the children in the district, be they public, private or special-needs students.
It is my sincere belief that Nahum Marcuse deserves to retain his seat there because of his tireless efforts to represent the needs and desires of the community.
As a parent of a special-needs child, Marcus advocates fiercely for all special-needs students. Anyone in that position knows the importance of doing all that can be done to maximize those students’ potential, and those who are not in that position — with all its challenges — be grateful for your gift.
On Tuesday, please vote for Nahum Marcus. He is impeccably honest and will do his utmost to fulfill the mandate you give him.

Supports Marcus for trustee

To the Editor:

         My high functioning special-needs child wanted to die a few years ago. My young child used to come home from school, go to bed and wanted to sleep forever.

         My child felt misunderstood at school and would lay in a fetal position at the therapist's office wanting life to end. I was told by administrators that my child was using psychology on them and they could not meet my child's needs. 

         My child was sent to BOCES and was taught at a second- grade level, not grade level. District administrators said they had to teach to the class and if I wanted grade level work, an aide could take over. That aide was not a trained teacher. My child was bullied due to appearance and religion.
