Christie Admits He Is A Failure

Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ," October 2009.
I am the proud product of our state’s public education system. In fact, my late mother was a dues-paying member of the NJEA. I know firsthand that one of the main reasons many of our schools rank among the best in America is because of our dedicated teachers and educational professionals who work hard every day to give our children the learning experience they deserve.
 Chris Christie today:
"For too long we have accepted low expectations and failure – particularly in our urban school districts – which has stolen hope from generations of New Jersey families,'' Christie said.
Wow - our schools really got bad in the last 12 months. Who's been running the state this past year, anyway? He should be fired...

And merit pay for teachers will solve these ills of "low expectations and failure" that are apparently plaguing our great state? How? Doesn't giving even more weight to high stakes testing (regardless of who those stakes apply to) simply exacerbate this problem? Don't worry kids, we don't expect you to actually learn, no need to worry about thinking, reasonsing, applying knowledge, or being creative...just pass the test and all will be well. Talk about low expectations.
