Statements about Education

"In our proposal, we would have expanded school aid across the board … Governor Christie slashed school aid in this budget, preferring instead to extend a tax break for millionaires over funding in the classroom."

Says that as a gubernatorial candidate, Chris Christie "promised no school cuts."

"When the union says I want to eliminate tenure, that’s not true."

"As soon as Chris Christie was governor, he gave tax cuts to millionaires."

"For a young man or woman who is entering the ninth grade in Newark this year, they have a 29 percent graduation rate."
