The Metuchen school district has moved up to #54 from #86 this year in the New Jersey Monthly public schools listing. This is certainly good news for the district, considering the heavy burdens placed on it in this economy, particularly with New Jersey not getting any Race to the Top funding.
Are you excited by this change? Does this bode well for the district as it stands or is there still a lot of work to be done? What changes do you think were enacted by the district that caused this uptick? And, since Metuchen is placed well above Edison, does that give Metuchen any better leverage against the consolidations the Governor continues to pull for?
