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

Absent in Newark

This WSJ article about some admittedly horrible absenteeism in Newark certainly helps Christie's cause. Just wondering, though...

Newark gives its teachers 18 days of sick leave; if you have more than 25 years in, you can get up to 28 days.

In my kids' NJ district, everyone gets 10 days sick leave. Period.

Newark is getting more than 3/4 of a billion in state aid.

My kids' district is getting exactly $0.00.

Any teacher worth their chalk dust will tell you that the worst thing you can do in your classroom is reward bad behavior...
