New Jersey Educators' WORST FEARS Come True

Tested to Despair in New Jersey

Proposed Regulations for Tenure Evaluations Confirm

 NJEA's Worst Fears

Did you really think No Child Left Behind was to improve 
education? Well, that's what happens when you don't read the fine print or pretend it just isn't there.


  1. This is a great demonstration of "collaboration" in action.

    Think collaborators in WWII France.

    And why is this NJEA president smiling??

      Think collaborators in WWII France.

      So true.

      I often wonder if any of our union leaders at the state level have ever seen the movie "The Bridge Over the River Kwai". They should.

    NCLB was a mis-directed policy set forth by the late Senator Ted Kennedy, Rep John Bohner and President Bush that tied Title 1 and Federal dollars to data points without accounting for extrinsic factors that still bedevil Schools and Educators. The issues of income disparity, dysfunctional homes, student mobility and the ability to attract seasoned teachers to low income areas still need to be addressed. The manipulation of this data is the nectar of the Reformy privitization movement.

  3. Interesting that both these posts are anonymous. So much fear of speaking out because a teacher's livelihood and family are at stake.

    How sad.
