Governor Christie stopped at Haddonfield High School this afternoon, to praise the school’s better than average scholastic achievement and graduation rates.

“Haddonfield is an example,” said the Governor, “of what we’re trying to do with education across the state- pairing increased resources for our schools with real reforms to transform education and to put students first.”

Christie then said he would continue to push for several education reform, including the Opportunity Scholarship Act, “merit pay, last in first out, amending the Charter law to modernize it a bit and give more tools to the Department of Education in reviewing and improving Charters, those are all important…I think Opportunity Scholarship Act is the one that can have the greatest short-term impact, so I’d like to see that done, but we’ll see what the will is in the Legislature to do it.”
