OK, I don't have time today to write a summary or look through the entire report, but you might want to check out the NJ Dept of Education's Comparative Spending Guide, which was released yesterday. Open the PDF and search for "Ridgewood" to see where we stand in terms of spending per student, ratio of teachers to students, ratio of administrators to students, etc.
You can see the report by clicking here.
I will write more about this later.
