Quote of the Day

From the Governor's press release announcing Christopher Cerf's nomination as NJ Commissioner of Education:
“Governor Christie has made it clear that 2011 is the year for education reform in New Jersey. He has put forward a bold plan and vision for remaking the system and taking on the challenges of inequity that currently exist,” said Christopher Cerf. “With the Governor’s commitment to a high-quality education for every child, it’s clear that we can go far in increasing student achievement, and providing every child the quality education they deserve regardless of zip code. I look forward to being a part of this fundamental and transformational change.”

Funny the Governor should mention "zip code" as a code for poor urban and rural areas mostly minorities and mostly racially segregated in ghettos by design. The other "zip codes" of the rich and educated do in fact predetermine the potential for success. SES is a powerful determinant of student progress. How does the Guv hope to improve the economic condition of these very poor "zip codes?"
