Carteret is doing something right

In response to “An Educator Comes Full Circle in Carteret” (NJEA Review, January 2020), let me tell you that Carteret Schools must be doing something right. Commissioner of Education Lamont Repollet graduated from Carteret and, like Milken winner Nikki Silva who also graduated from Carteret, became a teacher there. From there he went on to become principal and from there he went on to become a superintendent in Asbury Park and from there he went on to become the first and only-ever African American commissioner of education in the state of New Jersey.
