"By whose metric are these worthless degrees?" he asked.
$45,000 for a 1 year and 1/2 chef training program to make $10-$12 an hour at a local franchise restaurant. Maybe not worthless.

In 2013, (Spring) cut many aides and replaced them with reading specialists and psychologists in the hopes that it would give him a better “bang for the buck.” I believe this to mean there were less teachers in the classroom in favor of "pulling" more kids from class for "special" help in small group settings. Classroom behavior management likely suffered as the head teacher and/or their substitute for the day ran the whole show with 30 kids in room.

"but others could see premiums jump 36.6 percent." 36.6% seems reasonable right? is that about at the inflation level? How many employees make $100,000 or more with MVP?

Prison? Maybe slap on wrist. "Effler, former president of Cancer Support Services, faced a $41 million judgment that would be forgiven after paying $60,000."

SHOCK OF THE CENTURY:
Wildstein gave no indication in court that Christie had any role in the scheme. But after the hearing, his lawyer, Alan Zegas, reiterated a claim he made last year that there's evidence that Christie knew about it as it happened.

Not that many winners. The largest prize I ever won through luck was never awarded to me. Scam in college. Other than that $100 I believe. Lotto scratch off. :(
Lotto is for people bad at math… with big dreams...

Good article. Pretty much sums up why there have only been 4-5 mergers in the last decade statewide I believe. Start here. Imagine 2 Superintendents. Lets merge so one of us can get demoted or let go! Imagine a parent. Lets bus our kid for 45 minutes to school!

"Statewide video gaming contributed $866.9 million to the education fund in 2014-15, compared with $870.2 million the year before. Statewide video gaming took in $1.905 billion after payouts, a decline of $7.01 million."
1.9 billion win for the VLT owners.
877 million for education. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH LOCAL EDUCATION FUND GOT OTHER THAN IT WAS DOWN $210,000? MAYBE SOMEONE ELSE CAN FIGURE IT OUT???????? NOT SURE WHY THAT FIGURE WOULD NOT BE INCLUDED.
"The raceway’s annual contribution to the State Education Fund fell $210,000, or .003 percent, in 2014-15."
