The NJ Spotlight Roundtable Series: NJ's High School Diploma Under Debate
A high school diploma is supposed to ensure that a graduate is ready for college or a job, but debate persists over whether New Jersey public schools are delivering on that promise for all their students. The Christie administration has proposed new requirements and testing for high schools that it says will help raise the bar. At this NJ Spotlight Roundtable: NJ's High School Diploma Under Debate, we explored these issues with state Education Commissioner Chris Cerf and a panel of public education, college, and business leaders.
