TEACHNJ Four Years Later: What Have We Learned?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

When the new tenure law, “TEACHNJ,” was adopted in 2012, the Legislature declared its purpose to be “to raise student achievement by improving instruction;” while Gov. Chris Christie announced that it would lead to a dramatic reduction in the time and cost of removing ineffective teachers. This session will address whether TEACHNJ has achieved these goals. Attorneys who have represented school districts in tenure charge cases will discuss their experiences in TEACHNJ arbitration, recent arbitration decisions, and whether the procedures established by TEACHNJ are achieving its stated goals.
