N.J. Education Commissioner Bret Schundler to tell Senate panel of his priorities

Tom Hester, Sr.

The state Senate Education Committee will meet on Monday to discuss a measure that would revamp New Jersey's charter school regulation system.

State Education Commissioner Bret D. Schundler, who supports the expansion of charter schools, is scheduled to attend the hearing to outline the Christie administration's priorities regarding education in New Jersey.

The meeting will also focus on bill S-2198, a measure sponsored by Senate Education Committee Chairwoman Teresa Ruiz (D-Essex) and Senator Sandra Bolden Cunningham (D-Hudson), which would enable Rutgers University to authorize charter schools. The bill is designed to expedite the approval of charter school applications, and permit the authorization of special purpose charter schools.
