A report in the Atlantic City Press on a new superintendent in Atlantic County takes note of the high turnover rate of superintendents in NJ. According to the Press,
In school year 2007-2008, almost 22 percent of superintendents left the job in New Jersey, double the rate the year before, and the highest since the No Child Left Behind legislation took effect in 2001, according to data provided by the New Jersey School Boards Association. More than 40 of those who left retired. Almost half of all current superintendents are expected to retire within the next decade.
