New Jersey's state Board of Education on Wednesday approved Gov. Chris Christie's plan to take control of Camden's public schools, the fourth school district that will come under state control. The state over the summer will replace most of the administrators in the school system, which is the state's lowest-performing district. "The facts and the data are what they are and we needed to do something, but I would have hoped desperately that we could have come up with a different decision," state board member Ronald Butcher said.
