Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean Jr. urges education officials to operate public schools where feasible on Nov. 8 and 9 — dates now available for teaching and learning as the New Jersey Education Association today canceled its annual teachers’ convention in Atlantic City.
“The NJEA made the right decision today to cancel its annual convention in Atlantic City, where residents and businesses are barely beginning to heal from Hurricane Sandy’s wrath,” said Kean, R-21. “Sandy rehabilitation will be an arduous process for too many New Jersey communities, as evidenced, in part, by this week’s public school closures around the state.”
“With lingering damages possibly closing some schools early next week, it makes sense to give local districts the option of restoring these two canceled convention days as class days, in communities where transporting and schooling children can be done safely,” Kean added.

"It sounds like Councilman Baraka is talking about regionalization similar to what happened to the Camden Police Department. Clearly, if you regionalize, there is going to be a layoff of Newark workers. We cant afford to have more cops laid off right now. During Mr. Baraka's time on the council, the city laid off about 170 cops, when has led to our streets being much more dangerous than they need to be." - Newark Mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries, the former state Assistant Attorney General, referring to the disbandment of the South Jersey police force.- PolitickerNJ.com
