Patricia Wright, executive director of the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association, which supports Common Core and the tests, said she did not take the governor to mean New Jersey would ditch the nationwide standards entirely.
"What I heard was that we need to examine the Common Core and make sure this is what New Jersey needs. And from our association's viewpoint, this is exactly what New Jersey needs," she said in a phone interview after the speech. "We hope that this signals that all we need are some tweaks or things like that"
