CHERRY HILL - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) continued his push for education reform today, outlining his plans for new academic standards for public schools.
Even Christie's longtime adversaries seem to be on board with the plan. Christie says the new math plan that he wants to implement was developed nationally and is in use in 43 other states.
Wendell Steinhauer, NJEA?s vice president, says some of the new ideas are similar to those his agency suggested earlier this summer. Steinhauer says, "We do like this feeling of collaboration which we have been wanting all along, to find those common grounds and be part of the process."
