New Jersey Teacher Union Politics & Budget

New Jersey Left Behind:

Here's NJEA President Barbara Keshishian on yesterday's Assembly approval of legislation to cap property tax increases at 2%:
This is a devastating day for children and public education in New Jersey. On the heels of more than $1.3 billion in cuts to public education, the Legislature and the governor have put an ill-conceived and shortsighted policy in place that will prevent our public schools from ever climbing out of the hole that has been dug for them by the state.
An understandable reaction, if a bit histrionic. The hole we're in doesn't have a lot to do with any sort of property tax cap, but to an expensive, inefficient, and unsustainable public school system.
