TWO NJ CHARTER SCHOOLS MUST CLOSE AT END OF THE YEAR

Charter schools in Pemberton and Camden are closing at the end of the year due to a lack of performance.  The New Jersey Department of Education announced that the schools performed in the bottom 14 percent of all schools in the Garden State, so they must close in June.  Ten other charter schools had their charters renewed for five more years.  So far, the Christie administration has closed a dozen charter schools for bad performance.
