Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin' to sell

Cerf: wants no vote allowed on charter schools

Forget teacher certification

Former Edison exec Chris Cerf, now N.J. State Supt. wants end to teacher certification.
“I don’t care if a teacher is certified and has a Ph.D from Harvard. If their students aren’t learning in a year, we ought to take not of that,” Cerf told the state Senate Budget Committee. --
Cerf is also trying to prevent voters from having the opportunity to vote for charter schools or the monetary appropriations that support them. The reason? Voters would most likely vote to oppose them.
 "If the electorate does not support or cannot afford charter schools, then continued State support for such schools becomes an extension of a dictatorship, rather than a democracy." --Salvatore Pissuro, "Are N.J. charter schools an extension of a dictatorship or a democracy"
