Word Jazz served (mostly) daily. Education, politics, music, the arts, New Jersey, and whatever else strikes me.

I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009
A top Winslow School District official who moonlights at three South Jersey charter schools misled state investigators assigned to look into her nearly $300,000 annual income, according to the New Jersey Department of Education.
Ann F. Garcia came under investigation early this year after state officials noted that she had worked the equivalent of almost three full-time jobs simultaneously since 2009, an "unusually high" number, authorities said in a report by the department's Office of Fiscal Accountability and Compliance filed last month.
Ann Garcia's combined income last year exceeded the base salary of the highest-paid public school official in New Jersey, the Newark School District superintendent, who was paid $280,000 during the last school year, according to state records.
State education officials did not find fault with the volume of work she performed.
Thank the lord Christie got those superintendent caps in, so we could stop this feeding at the trough...
