JerseyCAN applauds Governor Christie’s step toward better serving NJ families
TRENTON, NJ—Today, Janellen Duffy, Executive Director of JerseyCAN: The New Jersey Campaign for Achievement Now, released the following statement on Governor Christie’s proposed charter school reforms:
“No child in New Jersey should have to wait for an excellent school. The regulatory changes proposed today will provide greater flexibility and innovation to support the growth of high-quality public charter schools, which families on waitlists across the state are demanding.
