TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie announced New Jersey will be the first East Coast state to participate in the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship program.
The governor held a news conference Friday saying he’s “proud to have that distinction” for the Garden State. The fellowship program provides $30,000 stipends for teachers to work at certain at-risk schools under three-year contracts.
“We’re reaffirming our commitment to investing in teacher talent,” Christie said.
Officials say the program’s goal Is to provide strong math and science teachers in understaffed schools.
Lew Candura, the veteran chair of the Morris County Democratic Committee, will retire this year and back the organization's executive director, Chip Robinson, to serve as his successor.Read More >
