In New Jersey, changes in educational law or regulation go through an approval process that often includes the very public entities of the Legislature, governor and the state Department of Education. But many people don’t realize that regulatory changes, which can include regulations on state standardized testing, graduation requirements, teacher evaluations, state standards, and other policy matters, involve the State Board of Education, which must approve changes in the code.
On July 12, “Conversations on New Jersey Education,” NJSBA’s online radio show, featured an interview with Mark Biedron, the president of the State Board of Education. The program is available to download or to listen to “on demand” online. To hear the live show or past recorded broadcasts, visit NJSBA’s BlogTalk Radio web page.
