Gov. Christie takes on teachers union
Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) offered some tough words for the New Jersey Education Association while speaking to the media at Montclair High School Tuesday.
"I have to stand up for the people of the state and I'm not going to allow the teachers union on State Street to be the ones that are governing state policy," said Christie. "They were not elected, I was."
The comments were made amid an ongoing battle between the governor and the union over various financial issues.
The governor also outlined his proposal to give additional state aid to school districts that agree to pay freezes for teachers.
