Gov. Chris Christie met with seven public school teachers from across the state in Loser Hall on Thursday, April 14, to discuss education reform, according to the governor’s press secretary, Michael Drewniak. He said the meeting, which covered topics including tenure reform and school budgets, was the fifth of its kind and the first at the College, which was chosen for its “central” location.
“A lot is filtered through the media,” Drewniak said. “The message is often lost and the meaning of it is sometimes lost and the tone is often lost, so these small group meetings just give a really good chance for teachers and the governor to be frank and open and not at all intimidated by or influenced by media.”
