TNTP, progenitor of the seminal “Widget Effect,” has this to say about how some states are bypassing  D.C. flaccidity (sorry) to produce meaningful education reform:

And in New Jersey, Democratic Sen. Teresa Ruiz built a bipartisan coalition and won the public support of GOP Gov. Chris Christie to pass the TEACHNJ Act, New Jersey’s most extensive education reforms in more than 100 years. Her argument: a stronger profession means more learning for kids, particularly in low-income communities. The law established a new teacher evaluation system and ties tenure to teachers’ performance in the classroom—controversial moves that were nonetheless passed unanimously.

    As my 93-year old Mom would say, TNTP has it 'a**-backwards'.

    Sen. Ruiz is what the Bolsheviks called a 'poleznye idioty' (look it up) for the real instigators of so-called 'reform' in this state.

    We could confirm this if the curtain was lifted in Trenton to reveal the real legislative process which is almost never visible.
