Christie Campaign Against Public Unions Prompts Anger, Challenge

A Freehold teacher has written an open letter to the Governor of New Jersey, available at The News Transcript, urging him to discontinue the "constant negative bombardment" of teachers that comes from his office in Trenton.  She complains that "the negative light that is being cast on teachers is both demoralizing and upsetting to all of us. . . . How does that promote a good educational environment across the state when the governor’s office consistently tries to pit parents and children against their teachers?"

She is particularly angry at Christie's comments to a student group about the annual teachers convention, saying he risks upsetting the student-teacher bond by drawing them into his caustic campaign against public unions.

She invites the Governor to visit her classroom.
