New London Likes Dr. Nick, kinda.....
It seems Fall River's former superintendent is wrapping up his first year in New London and is getting mostly high praise. An article in "The Day" reports that Dr. Nick is getting good marks for progressive thinking, setting high standards, and strong leadership. However he is also getting criticism for being confrontational, dismissive and bullying.
It all sounds pretty familiar and it will be interesting to see if Dr. Fischer's experience in New London mimics his tenure here in Fall River. One interesting thing is quite unlike Fall River, he was praised for his handling of the budget process.
If Dr. Nick continues to receive high marks and New London sees improvement in their school system, would that mean that the chaos and the problems here might have been our own doing?
THIS, is why we need a casino in Fall River.
A story in the Boston Globe reports that the parents of a 1 year old and a 10 year old left their children in the car while they gambled at Foxwoods. The parents come from right here in Massachusetts, one in Dedham and the other from Milton, both were arraigned in New London Superior Court. It only goes to reason that if we had a casino here in Fall River they'd be so much closer that the negligent duo could have just left the kids at home!
