NJ teachers union wants input on longer school day

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The president of New Jersey’s largest and most powerful teachers union says he wants input into Gov. Chris Christie’s proposal to extend the length of the school day and school year.

New Jersey Education Association President Wendell Steinhauer says in a statement that he welcomes the chance to sit down with Christie to discuss the benefits and challenges of the idea.

Steinhauer also says that Christie should renounce his veto on Monday of a bill to study implementing full-day kindergarten statewide.
