As Christie’s exit looms, 16 new charter schools want to open
April 10 – In what could be the final opportunity to win approval from the Christie administration, 16 new charters schools are trying to open in New Jersey.
The proposals come predominantly from North Jersey but also include plans for schools in Atlantic, Burlington and Ocean counties. The state must decide by July if it wants to approve any of the schools.
However, his administration has approved fewer new schools in recent years and instead supported school choice through the expansion of existing schools.
