The flux in New Jersey public education these days was all too evident this week as nearly 5,000 New Jersey school-board members and administrators traveled to Atlantic City for their associations’ annual conference.
The two-day New Jersey School Boards Association’s Workshop 2013 featured many of the usual programs for the annual event, including sessions on board relations, collective bargaining and the like.

Core State Standards.
