NJ Senate Panel Advances Teacher-Tenure Bill

A New Jersey state Senate committee has unanimously advanced a bill that would make teacher tenure harder to attain and easier to lose.

The measure approved Monday by the Budget Committee now advances to the full Senate. The Assembly is considering a similar measure with the same reform goal.

The concept of overhauling teacher tenure is a major tenant for those who want to improve public-school education.

Both versions of the bill have support from an array of disparate education advocacy groups. But the groups all have concerns about some provisions.

A spokesman for Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that the governor supports the bill adopted in the Senate and awaits the final version.
