"Trenton politicians cut $1.3 billion from education."

"To get out of the (teachers) union, you pay 85 percent of $731. Then you're out of the union, but you've got to pay it every year, also required by statute. That’s called a representation fee."

Says "New Jersey's public school students have the best Advanced Placement scores in the nation."

"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."
