New Jersey Governor Chris Christie - role model for education reform

It sounds good to me.
And on Tuesday, the governor, a Republican, used his State of the State address to push his education agenda further by calling for an end to teacher tenure, on top of his support for merit pay for teachers based partly on student achievement and adoption of a voucherlike system that would give students in low-performing schools other options.
Michelle Rhee's new organization, StudentsFirst, is providing policy support for Governor Christie's education initiatives.
