Christie v. NJEA/State LegislatureNovember 19, 2009
PolitickerNJ considers whether Christie’s election bodes poorly for NJEA’s political might:
Political problems for the state’s largest teacher’s union continue to mount. After going all out for Gov. Jon Corzine in the recent election, the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) knows they have a potential problem with voucher-backing charter school enthusiast Gov.-elect Christopher Christie. And in the Senate, it looks like Teresa Ruiz (D-Newark), a protégé of Newark political leader Stephen Adubato, might replace Shirley Turner (D-Lawrence) as chairman of the Education Committee. A fair assumption is that Ruiz will share Adubato’s fervent support for charter schools.
