A Note From The Editor

A Note From The Editor

For the past dozen years, the managing editor of this paper has written two columns each week – Rockaway Short Takes and School Scope. At times, those columns angered some in the community and often sparked debate. In any case, they became a part of the fabric of this paper. Times change, however, and the person who wrote those columns has taken on a new responsibility for the editorial content and direction of the paper. It has become difficult for the managing editor to stand aside from the persona of the paper and to write simply as a columnist, with views separate from those of the newspaper itself. It is because of that salient fact that Rockaway Short Takes and School Scope will no longer be published. In its place will be a column entitled "From The Editor’s Desk." That column will continue to address issues of the day, both in education and in the community at large. It is hoped that our readers will find "From The Editor’s Desk" a satisfactory replacement for both Rockaway Short Takes and School Scope.
