Going to bat for kids
Just when you think Editorial Page Editor Alfred P. Doblin is perpetually excited by Christie, he slams the governor's education policies in a column on the Opinion Page today (A-19):
Students are the casualties of Christie's war. And it does not go unnoticed that the governor chooses to keep his own children out of the war zone. Parents who cannot afford private schools or Christmas vacations to Walt Disney World have little choice but to watch political weapons of mass destruction fall on their local districts while they listen to platitudes on how it will get better at some future date. None of that does a whit of good for children caught in the crossfire.
