Star Ledger--Murphy told tearful mom 'help is on the way' for schools. She says those are just lines

When pressed for an answer, Amy Jablonski said Friday she'd know the exact date at which she might start questioning her vote for Gov. Phil Murphy.

"On July 1, once the state has officially adopted its budget," said Jablonski, a school board member in Chesterfield and assistant principal in Holmdel.

NY Times-- 19 Years After Columbine, Students Again Say ‘Enough’ on Gun Violence

Most of them were not yet born when students shot a dozen people to death inside Columbine High School in Colorado, an atrocity that sparked a national debate over guns exactly 19 years ago.

But on Friday, on the anniversary of the April 20, 1999, shooting, the several thousand high school students who walked out of schools across the city and beyond to rally against guns in Manhattan said they felt they lived in a world of near-constant Columbines.

Education Week--Costly Pension Plans Are Fanning the Flames of Teacher Unrest

Across the country, teachers are walking out of their classrooms to fight for higher pay.
