NJ Spotlight and WHYY Newsworks Talk Christie and Charters

Will the governor make this a big bang issue or will he let it just fade away in his last year in office?

Any talk of charter schools in New Jersey is as much about politics as it is about education, and such chatter has only ramped up of late as both critics and advocates have weighed in on new regulations for the alternative schools.

NJ Spotlight’s education writer John Mooney yesterday joined host David Heller of WHYY’s Newsworks Tonight to discuss the latest developments concerning charter schools in the state and whether Gov. Chris Christie will go out with a whimper or a bang on this issue in his last year in office.
