Henninger said Glen Rock spent about $17,000 per pupil, more than Ridgewood, or two-thirds of the other districts in Bergen County, but that Glen Rock’s program was not on a par with Ridgewood’s. She said Ridgewood offered more foreign languages and a wider variety of academics for less money per student. “What is costing us so much?” Henninger demanded. “We’re getting less than other districts, but we’re paying so much more.” “The board thinks that if you throw money at it, it works,” Finn said. “Throwing money at the problem all the time doesn’t solve all the problems.” He added, “A couple of years ago they couldn’t find $100,000 to pay for new boilers for the kids (at Central School) but they found $140,000 for an assistant superintendent.
