Gov. Christie went to a middle school in Caldwell to sign six education reform bills, including bills that limit suspensions and expulsions for kids in preschool though grade 2 and establish state aid for non-public school security.
Longstanding legislation in New Jersey stipulates school districts must provide busing for all K-8 students living more than two miles from school and high school students living more than 2.5 miles from school.
