teachers in a New Jersey school district have been suspended after a state
investigation found an unusual number of erasures and other irregularities on
Woodbridge School Board President Brian Small announced the suspensions
Monday. He also said an assistant superintendent has resigned.
Four Woodbridge schools were among nine that the state Education Department
announced in March it was investigating because of high erasure rates on
State investigators recently completed reports on the problems at the Avenal
Street and Ross Street Elementary Schools finding what Small called "improper

State Education Department spokeswoman Barbara Morgan says reports should
come for them and other schools soon.
