Assemblywomen Connie Wagner (D-Bergen) and Mila Jasey (D-Essex) tell  the Star Ledger concerned students are suffering from post-traumatic stress following superstorm Sandy.

“I don’t think there was any district that was open. So all districts lost time. I think there’s no way to measure the emotional impact on staff and students and families,” Jasey told the Star Ledger. “Maybe take the money expended to do the tests, score the tests and all that and maybe put some of that money to replacing materials that have been lost.”

The Assemblywomen came up with the idea after an education committee hearing aboutt the struggles of some school districts in finding alternate locations to hold classes and the challenges presented by Sandy.
