NJ’s Competing Tenure Reform Bills: Big Concessionon on LIFOJune 13, 2012
Tomorrow, according to a press release from New Jersey School Boards Association, the Assembly Education Committee will consider a new bill sponsored by Patrick Diegnan that would “bar the state education commissioner from approving any application for the creation of a virtual charter school for one year. The bill also would establish the Virtual Charter School Task Force, which would make recommendations for the governance structure of virtual charter school education.”
Bill A-3105 would place a moratorium on schools “in which all or some instruction is provided through the Internet, and students enrolled in the school and instructional staff employed by the school are geographically removed from each other.”
NJSBA supports the bill.
