Today’s NJ Spotlight reports on Gov. Christie’s approval of two Assembly bills, one that bars standardized testing for K-2 students and the other that forbids the State D.O.E. from exacting penalties on schools where more than 5% of parents refuse tests for their children. The primary sponsor for both bills is Assemblyman Patrick Diegnan (D-Middlesex), whose top three campaign contributors are NJEA, the Electric Workers Local, and SEIU.
Among the celebrants were Save Our Schools-NJ and NJEA. Another was Carolee Adams, president of the Eagle Forum of New Jersey. The Eagle Forum lobbies for ” the sanctity of human life as a gift from our Creator, as proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence,” voting restrictions, and “exposing the radical feminists,” and lobbies against ” the feminist goals of stereotyping men as a constant danger to women,” ” the dumbing down of the academic curriculum through fads such as Outcome-Based Education and courses in self-esteem, diversity, and multiculturalism,” and, of course, the Common Core.
