POLL: NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS OPEN TO TENURE REFORMS

Education reform is supported by a majority of New Jersey residents, according to a new poll. Monmouth University released a poll saying that about one-third (32%) say that performance-based metrics should weigh more heavily in determining teacher compensation.  However, nearly half (47%) feel that performance and experience should be given equal weight in determining an individual teacher’s salary. Gov. Chris Christie has been pushing for tenure reform in the state. Currently, teachers receive tenure after three years and do not get paid better if they do better than other teachers.
