New Jersey Governor Chris Christie raised the stakes for PARCC on the state’s teachers while at a local middle school he explained why.
Wendell Steinhauer, president of the New Jersey Education Association, says PARCC is a flawed assessment and should never be a graduation requirement.
Based on numbers collected by NJEA, PARCC refusals in New Jersey appear to have topped 40,000 so far and they say more numbers are coming in daily.
The New Jersey Education Association launched a six week television and online advertising campaign targeting PARCC in the midst of parental push back.
New Jersey parents, taxpayers and teachers express their frustration with the Common Core State Standards and PARCC at a public hearing held in Jersey City.
