NEW JERSEY ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS
Press Release: For Immediate Release
Task Force to Eliminate Excessive and Burdensome Education Regulations is long overdue!
TRENTON, N.J. — April 4, 2011 — The New Jersey Association of School Administrators (NJASA) applauds Governor Chris Christie’s just-created Education Transformation Task Force.
NJASA Executive Director Richard Bozza said, “This Executive Order authorizing the Task Force is long overdue! Continually over the years, the NJASA membership has been demanding action from Trenton to streamline the cumbersome and inefficient, voluminous and redundant paperwork processes and procedures generated from state funded and unfunded mandates that cover instructional services, cooperative purchasing, transportation, health benefits, and administrative and business services.”
“Today’s actions by the Governor demonstrate his Administration’s comprehension of the massive burden chief education officers and school leaders face in implementing the daily operations of a New Jersey school district. NJASA stands ready and willing to work with the Governor and his staff on this admirable initiative,” added NJASA Executive Director Bozza.
