Rye Schools Have a “Super”(indendent) Shine, According to Journal News

Gold_starA teacher will praise a child for doing well.

Now Rye parents will need to heap some praise on Rye school superintendent Ed Shine for earning another gold star. Back in November, Rye schools ranked #52 in the nation in the US News rankings.

School_tax_monopolyNow the Journal News, in a report last week, called Rye one of the "better buys for your tax dollar". Rye was just one of five Westchester school districts singled out in the report. The other districts were Ardsley, Eastchester, Pleasantville and Somers.

The report analyzed test scores and tax bills to determine relative value for money spent.

Shine told the Journal News: "We are a community that values education."

  1. Shine should not take any credit for any of the accolades the district received. He has absolutely no commitment to the development and progress of the school system and has consistently been an obstructionist in getting things done. Everyone in Rye is counting down the days until he retires, and can’t wait to be relieved of his vindictive ways.
