Broad to NJ: you can have the funding if Christie stays in office

The recent forced disclosure of the terms of a grant received by New Jersey from the Broad Foundation had some interesting terms included. Among them:

  • Chris Christie must remain as governor
  • The number of "high quality" charter schools must go up by 50%
  • If the state is forced to make the grant public, "it must give the foundation advance notice of such disclosure 'so that TBF may contest the disclosure and or/seek a protective order.'"
The Education Law Center, which forced the publication of the grant, is calling for an investigation.
