Assemblywoman Connie Wagner today called on the Christie administration to regain its focus and direct attention to meeting the deadline for applying for the $268 million New Jersey is eligible for through the federal Education Jobs Fund.
“It’s beyond puzzling as to why Governor Christie has not applied for this money yet. Bergen County schools have been hit the hardest by the Governor’s school aid cuts this year, with more districts seeing a total loss of aid than in any other county. The devastating effects these cuts will have on our classrooms are compounded by our loss of Race to the Top funds.

As school begins, we as parents want to give our children everything, from new book bags to new clothes. We spend countless hours running from store to store getting all the last minute items that our children will need to start the year off right. But do we take into consideration the health hazards that may be awaiting them at school? Many schools still use cleaning products that contain a wide variety of hazardous chemicals that can cause asthma, cancer, reproductive harm, and damage to the body’s nervous system and internal organs. These chemicals are also the cause of poor indoor air quality in schools, which contributes to lower productivity and academic achievement, absenteeism, asthma and other diseases. To help your children have the best possible environment to learn in, here’s my back to school "To Do" list and 7 Secrets to Getting It Done. As parents, we can’t afford not to do this.
Wishing You a healthy school year
