EDISON - The state education commissioner is pushing ahead with a plan that would require aspiring teachers to have a B average in their college courses. The current requirement is a C+.

The commissioner says smarter teachers are the key to smarter kids, and some residents agree.

The proposal would also require a final exit exam for college graduates.

A spokesman for the teacher's union says the union is still weighing the details of the plan.
