New Jersey’s Governor continues to impress:
Governor Chris Christie gives remarks regarding teachers and the teachers Union, the NJEA during a Town Hall Meeting in Robbinsville, NJ.
Christie explained that his fight is not against teachers. It is against the NJEA. Christie cited this stat: a teacher who is in the union, pays $730 a year to join. If a teacher doesn’t want to join the union, they pay 85% of the $730 per year, to not join. Christie said:
“It’s like the Hotel California. You can check in anytime, but you can never leave.”
Christie compares the NJEA to the school bully. Said other governors run scared of the bully. While the parents and tax payers are the ones bleeding on the ground from all the money they pay to the NJEA. But Christie said he’s not running scared instead he said:
“You punch them, I punch you.”
But wait, there’s more:
|Christie speaks in Washington DC, calling Newark schools 'absolutely disgraceful'|
I’m loving this guy, a lot.
