Engaged students. Involved families. Effective teachers. Strong school leaders. Vibrant and innovative classrooms. Only the highest standards.
This is our shared, inspiring vision for education in New Jersey. We just need a map to get there.
Today I am proud to share JerseyCAN’s latest report, a seven-to-10-year guide for improving education through commonsense policy changes. Click here to read New Jersey Schools: A Framework for Excellence, and see what others are saying about the document.
To produce the Framework, JerseyCAN spent months collecting input from educators, school and district leaders, advocates and state policymakers. We took those valuable ideas and paired them with research-backed best practices on building great schools. Then we devised a robust set of policy recommendations that we believe could truly transform the landscape of New Jersey education.
In coming years, JerseyCAN will use the Framework to guide our work, and to engage partners and communities on the leading school reform issues.
We hope you’ll join us. You can start by reading the Framework and sharing it with colleagues, friends and family.
All the best for the holiday season. We look forward to picking up this map in the New Year and forging the path together to great Jersey schools!
