N.J. Gov. Chris Christie has sent a bill back to the Legislature that would use money saved from renegotiating teachers contracts to avoid laying off educators. The bill was among three Christie conditionally vetoed yesterday.
NJ.com reports Christie found the bill’s language overly broad, saying it might deter districts from trying to cut costs by renegotiating the contracts before they expire.
The changes Christie suggests including giving the School Board the ultimate authority to decide staff sizes.
