BREAKING: Schundler Sacked!
Gov. Christie has sacked his education commissioner Bret Schundler as reported in NJ.com. The Governor apparently took the action after Shundler refused to resign.
This takes the issue of NJ narrowly losing $400 million in federal funds to a whole new level. Gov. Christie is clearly holding people to account and in this case, a close ally who campaigned for him across the state in his upstart run for Governor.
Bret Shundler is the former mayor of Jersey City who successfully implemented many successful solutions in his two terms. Along with Gov. Christie, he’s been a strong advocate for educational reform and charter schools.
