Some NJ teachers retiring early due to budget cuts

New Jersey Education Commissioner Bret Schundler thinks that it's time for some teachers in the state to retire.

Schundler says that the Garden State's schools are growing at an unaffordable rate. He says the longest-serving teachers should retire in an effort to help alleviate costs.

Len Domino, who has been teaching at Passaic High School for 35 years, says he is planning to retire early due to budget cuts. Domino told News 12 New Jersey he understands Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) is trying to "straighten out the state of New Jersey," but that he is attacking the wrong people.
