The State Board of Education today adopted a recommendation by Commissioner of Education David Hespe to move Jersey City’s public schools one step closer to local control. Jersey City, which has been under state control for 26 years, longer than any other district in New Jersey, has been moving toward regaining full local control in recent years.  Having already regained the right to local governance and management of its own budget, the district was today granted control over personnel and operational decisions as well.
