    Only 2 of those jobs were current: both are leave replacement starting February or March. All the others were for jobs for the current school year, with start dates of last September.

    So the state of NJ is currently posting no positions, or at least none on that site.

    Our district is cutting tech teachers, also. Our school was just named a Title I school...that allows us to keep our part time tech person.

    If you look at the job postings in ny and nj you will see many CURRENT positions opening up. The website that the board of ed in NJ posted up is quite lame in the job postings

    "Teach" technology? What exactly does that mean?

    Learn how to use a mouse? Heat up a burrito in a microwave?

    In the Northeast, Technology Education refers to more than computer fundamentals. In NY state, it has replaced most of the "Industrial Arts" courses and has integrated much more math, science, engineering, and architecture into the curriculum.
