Larkins must explain critera behind 10 New Jersey school renovations

    New Jersey’s Schools Development Authority has allotted $584 million to spend on 10 schools in the state’s poorest districts. CEO of the authority, Marc Larkins, will go before a panel tomorrow to explain his choices.


    The Assembly Education Committee is expected to grill Larkins on the criteria upon which he chose the schools, the Associated Press reports. Larkins chose 10 from a pool of 52 projects that were in the works before Gov. Chris Christie stopped progress for a review.

    Construction on two of the projects could begin as early as this year.
