Democrats for Education Reform's Kathleen Nugent, NJ State Director, celebrates the passage of Sen. Teresa Ruiz's tenure reform bill:
Last month in a historic move, the New Jersey State Legislature unanimously passed Senator Teresa Ruiz’s (D-Essex) tenure reform bill known as the Teacher Effectiveness and Accountability for the Children of New Jersey Act (TEACHNJ). After more than 18 months of research, ongoing discussion, and consensus-building led by Senator Ruiz, the final product earned the support of education stakeholders statewide. Proponents of the bill included the state’s largest teachers unions, the New Jersey Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers New Jersey, business chambers, education reform advocates, school boards, and more.
