  2013 Urban Innovator Award

January 31, 2014

 
     
 

 

On January 31, 2014, the Manhattan Institute's Center for State and Local Leadership presented its annual Urban Innovator Award to New Jersey's state commissioner of education Christopher Cerf.

New Jersey evolved from a laggard to a leader in education reform under Cerf's leadership. The Garden State implemented numerous efforts: tenure reform, Newark's historic teachers' contract, support for effective charters, renaissance schools in Camden, Newark, and Trenton, and inter-district choice. These changes foster choice, competition, accountability, and improve student achievement.
