NJ Senate Committee Approves Cerf as Education Head

A New Jersey Senate committee has unanimously approved acting state education commissioner Christopher Cerf.

Acting Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf (NJ Dept. of Education)

After Thursday’s vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee, Cerf’s nomination will now be taken up by the full Senate.

Cerf has served as the state’s acting commissioner for about a year and a half. He has had a hand in crafting a bill on teacher tenure reform that the Legislature recently passed and is now awaiting Gov. Chris Christie’s signature.

Before coming to New Jersey, Cerf worked for private-sector companies involved in public education, and was senior campaign adviser to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

He was nominated by Christie after the governor fired then-commissioner Bret Schundler in 2010 over a botched $400 million federal grant application.
