President, Healey Education Foundation

I joined JerseyCAN because the likelihood of achieving the reforms needed for New Jersey children pinned down in failing schools increases greatly by the organizations collective leadership, bias for action and commitment to evidenced based advocacy. As a funder in Camden, it is my privilege to invest in high quality seats for children of the city. There is plenty of school choice in New Jersey if you have the right parents, or can afford the right mortgage. I want to see kids in the toughest places—who need great schools right now—have the same access to great education as those in our best schools and districts.
