Chris Cerf Leaving As New Jersey Education Commissioner

Probably got nothing to do with BridgeGate, but another member of the Christie crew is slinking out:

New Jersey Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf, who pushed for charter schools to give parents more choices and helped draft a landmark tenure law with the state’s powerful teachers union, is stepping down at the end of this month, according to a report in The Record.

The newspaper is reporting that Cerf, 59, will leave Feb. 28 to take a job with an education technology firm run by former New York City schools chancellor Joel Klein, Cerf’s onetime boss.

Cerf will become chief executive officer of Amplify Insight, a division of Amplify, the newspaper reported.

Cerf, education commissioner for just over three years, brokered a 2012 law that ties tenure to classroom observations and student test results.

“That was the classic sitting in a windowless room for days on end negotiating,” he said of the behind-the-scenes work to make the agreement a reality.

Cerf became New Jersey’s top education official in December 2010 after Gov. Chris Christie fired Bret Schundler over a disqualified “Race to the Top” application that cost New Jersey up to $400 million in federal school aid.

And of course Cerf goes off to cash in.

This might be a good time to remember that the last NJ Ed Commissioner told us that Christie was basically liar when Christie blamed him and fired him over the RttT flap.


  1. The rats are fleeing while the ship sinks, - may the execrable Cami Anderson be next - yet somehow I predict that Amplify will score contracts in the Garden State.

    1. Cerf keeps landing on his feet - always more power, more influence, more money...

  2. Can he please take Cami Anderson with him?

    1. Another snow storm on Thursday. How will Cami handle it?
