N.J. Dept. of Education to discuss new graduation requirements

    The N.J. Department of Education is scheduled to discuss new graduation requirements and some changes to the Garden State’s charter school regulations in a meeting Wednesday.

    According to NJ Spotlight, the board has asked for presentations on several key topics, including the data system that will drive many of Governor Chris Christie’s reforms.

    On Monday, Gov. Christie released new graduation requirements that would change the way high school students are tested leading up to graduation.

    NJ Spotlight says the board has a full complement of 13 members, including six appointed by the Governor, for the first time in several years.
