Using SAT and ACT as a guide is misleading and in fact many universities are now starting to look away from these tests, or at least not giving the same weight to the scores.
DA, you and I are not going to convince each other of anything at this point. All I can tell you is that nearly a decade of experience both in the classroom and in administrative meetings has shown me some of the flaws in your arguments.
With that said, I will leave now and just say that Christie is short sighted and is hurting the state more than helping it.

I just think it is funny that you disregard every fact I have presented because I am not on the inside, which may be the reason you think that way, kind of blinded by the system.
I have proved that Private institutions do better at educating our children than public institutions at less than half the cost.. some as little as 25% of the cost in some urban areas.
As you said though, we will not agree. And I do know it is an uphill battle debating with someone who is part of the system I question. Ron Paul did a great speech about the Public schools failing and advocated for a state level voucher program and education tax credits.The Historic PES Legend

Well most have a lower debt to gdp ratio so that's actually a good thing. We have the second highest ratio in the world and that has to change. When Christie brings the wealth back to New Jersey, then you might see things change. More wealth does create more tax revenue which will allow them to add back to education.

didnt mean to rehash this, but just curious if anyone has heard the other issue from the Christie administration?
It seems that NJ will now not be able to make a claim toward their "Race to the Top" money as the Christie admin screwed the pooch on the forms. I am sure that this is the teachers fault, as Christie can blame them for not teaching him how to read and write properly

So now you're happy that you aren't getting the funds because of a clerical error in a 1000 page application? Boy you teachers really hate him don't you...
"A new Quinnipiac University Poll on Thursday found 51 percent of voters approve of Mr. Christie’s job performance, while 36 percent of voters say they disapprove.
The latest poll marks a significant change in momentum for the Republican governor. The last poll, issued in June, had Mr. Christie with a 44 percent approval rating. Forty-four percent of voters in the that poll disapprove of Mr. Christie’s performance as governor. "
That must sting
