Quote of the Day

Patrick Murray of Monmouth University responds to criticism of the poll finding that public sentiment favors Gov. Christie's education reform package:
There is widespread support – 77% in fact – for changes to the tenure system that would make it easier to dismiss underperforming teachers. Here are some interesting facts about that statistic. These changes to tenure are supported by a whopping 71% of teacher households and 73% of those who actually approve of the current tenure system.
Criticisms came in large part from Blue Jersey, Jersey Jazzman, and Dr. Bruce Baker of Rutgers.
