The New Jersey Education Association set forth reform proposals Tuesday about tenure and other matters, including collective bargaining. Here is what one line said:
“NJEA will make the case that collective bargaining has benefitted public education as a whole and is a driver of high property values.”
Hmm … A driver of high property TAXES would be more like it.
After being lambasted by Gov. Chris Christie as a greedy public union for months, the New Jersey Education Association on Tuesday came out with a proposal to change teacher tenure laws in the state.
It should try harder. The NJEA's proposal fails to question whether teachers should get tenure after three years, as they do now, or even if tenure should exist.
