Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen knows all about sharing his line of work with his father.

From that standpoint, he has much in common with Robert and Joshua Weinstein, the father and son combination of teachers in the Parsippany School District.

Frelinghuysen (R-11) visited Joshua Weinstein’s seventh grade social studies class at the Brooklawn Middle School this week, just before speaking with Robert Weinstein’s IPLE class at Parsippany Hills High School.

Students asked the nine-term congressman about the current situation in the Ukraine and Russia, Affordable Care Act, and standardized testing among other issues.

“The questions echoed a theme as the students become increasingly aware of the world around them,” Joshua Weinstein said.

Frelinghuysen often visits schools and students in his congressional district during recess from Washington D.C., and is a native of Morris County.

In stead of brainwashing everyone in NJ11, why didn't Patch report specific issues that "Lord Rodney" discussed ??? I thought transparency was more important than giving only one side of issues. Seems media doesn't know what news is.

Thanks for the comment, Joe. Unfortunately, we couldn't attend this event in person. We were given this information and photos from the teacher, Joshua Weinstein to post here. Hope this clarifies the issue for you. Thanks!
