Nice. The NJEA knows it’s doing such a bad job at educating kids with its union thuggery, it is willing to sacrifice Race to the Top funding to prove it.
The New Jersey Education Association is advising its members not to sign grant applications, in part because the program would link teacher pay to student performance on tests, Staff Writer Leslie Brody reported. That could cost New Jersey up to $400 million in lost grants over the next four years, money that is supposed to encourage innovation and help turn around failing schools. The current state education department is proceeding in the hopes that local union chapters join in anyway.
