The NJ Spotlight covers good news for New Jersey: it seems that school voucher schemes are no longer part of Governor Christie’s agenda! Check out this article at the link below the quote.
In education circles, one of the more notable parts of Gov. Chris Christie’s State of the State address on Tuesday was something he didn’t mention: school vouchers.
For one of the first times in any of his major addresses that have highlighted his signature education agenda, Christie did not press for the state to adopt a form of school vouchers, whether through tax credits or other means.
He hinted at the idea, saying that students in so-called “failing” schools should be given the opportunities to go elsewhere. But he dropped it at that. There was nothing about the proposed Opportunity Scholarship Act, the most notable voucher legislation of the last decade, and nothing about private school options at all.
And it didn’t go unnoticed.
