Kudos to NJ Left Behind for calling out Sue Altman and Working Families and asking for whom they really speak. Altman is unable to give any credit to Camden’s charter schools despite their remarkable successes in educating Camden children. Nor can she give any credit to the corporate incentive program for bringing businesses to Camden.
As SPCNJ points out (as cited by NJ Left Behind), Working Families has received at least $945,000 that’s attributable to the NJEA, and the NJEA opposes charters and the corporate incentive program. And therefore so do Altman and Working Families.
Altman and Working Families speak for the most powerful special interest in the state – the NJEA – not the people of Camden.
