Statehouse Photo Exhibit to Expose DeplorableConditions in New Jersey Public SchoolsTrenton – An art exhibit in front of the Statehouse will expose the shameful conditions in some New Jersey public schools. Called “A Blind Eye: The Immorality of Inaction,” the exhibit highlights the shocking result that four years of delayed repairs, renovations and construction have had on our public schools and the students who attend them.
Heart-wrenching photographs will be displayed in front of the Statehouse to demand immediate action by Gov. Christie and the SDA. The Christie administration has dragged its feet on repairs and construction of school facilities in the 31 designated high-priority districts. The resulting conditions are not only deplorable, they are immoral.
The exhibit has been created by Healthy Schools Now, a coalition of parents, educators, students and public school advocates dedicated to ensuring that all New Jersey children and school employees learn and work in safe, modern school buildings.

Chris Christie's war on poor students is exactly the sort of disgusting behavior that Tom Moran of the Star-Ledger says isn't nearly as bad as earning the respect of teachers and their unions.WHAT: A blind eye: The immorality of inaction. A visually compelling art show shedding light on the deplorable conditions in some New Jersey public schools. (Preview some of the photos here.)WHEN: Wednesday, October 23, 2013, 11:00 AMWHERE: Front steps of the Statehouse, 125 W. State Street, Trenton, New Jersey
I really, really wish I could make Tom Moran stand in front of the beautiful, deserving students of these schools and explain to them that he is endorsing the man who has abandoned them - simply because Barbara Buono thinks their teachers deserve workplace protections.
Maybe Moran can ask David Tepper to host this exhibit in the lobby of his hedge fund office...
Prediction: Tom Moran will not be covering this important event.
