NJEA Presents Its Own Ideas

New Jersey’s largest teachers union is presenting its own ideas for major changes in the state’s education system.

The New Jersey Education Association released its reform platform Monday, just ahead of its annual convention this week in Atlantic City.

The NJEA and Gov. Chris Christie have often been at odds since he took office in 2010.

He supports eliminating the current tenure system for teachers and using public funds to pay for scholarships to send some students to private schools.

The teachers union plan calls for less drastic changes to the tenure system. It also opposes the private-school scholarships and having for-profit companies run New Jersey schools.

The union says it has a responsibility to lead the way to school changes — not just criticize what it considers bad ideas.
