    New Jersey school superintendents were fuming last night at a public hearing meant to discuss superintendent pay caps.

     

    Set to take effect Feb. 7, the caps are cause for concern among superintendents who say the salary ceiling will drive education talent away from the state. The New Jersey Association of School Administrators will likely take legal action against the caps, NJ.com reports.

    Neither Gov. Chris Christie nor acting Education Commissioner Rochelle Hendricks attended the hearing.

    Feed the Feed: Will pay caps drive NJ educators to other states, or should they be seen as a necessary part of budget cuts?
