Christie’s education task force releases reform report

    N.J. Gov Chris Christie and Secretary of Education Chris Cerf were in Pennington today to discuss their preliminary education reform report, which Christie says is meant to prevent students from being denied access to a quality education based on their ZIP codes.

    Christie endorses changes that including eliminating some regulations on public schools and updating their accountability systems, as the Associated Press reports. The end goal is to produce college- or career-ready high school grads and bridge the performance gap between high- and low-income students.
