Governor Christie's education plans
We've all been wondering what's coming for schools under a Christie governorship. I'm sure all will be revealed (as much as anything is revealed in Trenton) in due time, but I just stumbled on this story from back in November that predicted New Jersey will become an "education battlefield." The author lists all of the education-related passages from Christie's platform. I read through it all and can't help but notice that pretty much none of it applies to Ridgewood. And I'm not sure how I feel about that. Sometimes a little "benign neglect" isn't such a bad thing.
