nj-teacher-retirements5,444 New Jersey teachers have filed applications to retire so far this month, already more than double the amount of applications filed in July 2009, according to a report, bringing the total for the year to 6,840 applications. The total retirement applications in 2009 was 3,671, the report said. The spike in teacher retirements comes amid a budget battle waged by Gov. Chris Christie to cut state aid to schools by $820 million, while calling for teachers and the NJEA union to accept wage freezes. Star Ledger.

  1. Interesting on how TLS uses as a picture an angry mob to represent teachers. Why not a gray haired 60 year old who has spent her life teaching her student? Could it be TLS wants to elicit a certain response?

  2. It’s from the Star Ledger. Just click on the link….I assume you’re a public school teacher. Don’t let the facts get in your way.
