Governor Christie aims to fix the broken education system in New Jersey by fixing standards for teacher eligibility and standards for raises and tenure.
Teacher of the lower grade students are going to have to pass math and reading tests in order to keep their jobs. WOW!
Pay and tenure will become tied to performance rather than longevity. AMAZING! The latter will have to be passed by the legislature first. Let’s hope they do it.
The CBS press article did not contain language to cast these measures in a negative light. That’s also amazing.
