Both men are scheduled to speak at the American Federation for Children and the Alliance for School Choice’s major meeting. The groups advocate for giving parents more school options for their children.

Christie has been pushing for a tax-credit program that would use public money to send children in some New Jersey communities to  private schools.

The Republican governor and Democratic mayor have united previously on education issues. They were both involved in Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to donate $100 million to try to improve Newark’s schools.
