Christie announces 3rd education policy plan of the week

BERGENFIELD - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) continued his tour this week of brainstorming at public schools with a visit to Roy Brown Middle School in Bergenfield.

At the middle school, Christie announced a pilot program for teacher training, which involved a number-based system. Principal Shana Wright said she was happy to hear the Bergenfield School District was involved.

New rules and methods are also being plotted to resolve the question of how to best evaluate teacher performance.

Christie has now laid out three of his four major education reforms. Along with accountability, academics and teacher talent, the governor is expected to announce an innovation and technology proposal.
