Gov. Christie to explore autism schools
PARAMUS, New Jersey -- Gov. Chris Christie is exploring a plan to develop schools that specialize in educating children with autism in each of New Jersey's 21 counties.
The governor told a town hall meeting in Paramus Thursday night the idea would offer a cost-effective alternative to districts trying to create their own special education curriculum.
Autism New Jersey director Linda Meyer told the Statehouse bureau of The Star-Ledger of Newark and The Record it sounds like the governor is aiming for equality and access to education for all.
