MOUNT OLIVE— After allegedly calling students “Negroes,” two long-time Mount Olive High School physical education teachers have been given their jobs and tenure back and will be entitled to 17 months back pay.
According to the latest numbers from the state Department of Education, there are 1,000 or so of these specialty programs in the state, offered either at a county's vocational facility or right on the campus of a New Jersey high school.
One of the highlights of Gov. Chris Christie's State of the State address Tuesday was his call for a longer school day and school year in New Jersey. His comments received immediate reaction from professionals in the field.
