TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senators Linda R. Greenstein and Jim Beach that would support military families by allowing qualified military spouses to teach in New Jersey schools while completing additional requirements for teacher certification was signed into law today.
“The life of a military spouse is already made difficult by repeated deployments and having to move from state to state. There is no reason why finding employment should be a part of that difficulty,” said Senator Greenstein, D-Middlesex and Mercer. “When it comes to teaching, we should be doing all that we can to encourage more qualified individuals to take up that respected profession. Through this important package of bills, we can show support for our military families and make their transition into our state as seamless as possible.”
