Gov. Chris Christie has named school choice, charter schools, school funding, tenure reform and teacher evaluations as the issues that he plans to address this year. Change in education seems almost certain, but what change will boards of education embrace and which proposals will be opposed?
NJSBA President Raymond R. Wiss will discuss the major issues being debated at the state level with Ray Pinney, host of NJSBA’s online radio program, Conversations on New Jersey Education. The program will air 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Friday, Sept. 23.
About the Program Conversations on New Jersey Education, NJSBA’s program over BlogTalkRadio.com, is similar to a live radio talk show, except it is broadcast through the Internet. The 45-minute shows air live, but recordings are also available to download later to iPods or MP3 devices, or to listen to “on demand” via a computer online.
Listeners only need a computer with high speed Internet access. To hear the live show or past recorded broadcasts, visit NJSBA’s BlogTalk Radio web page.
