On January 29, 2019, NJ Spotlight published a piece by Carly Sitrin regarding a delayed vote on New Jersey high school graduation requirements. The article quoted a statement from JerseyCAN and Better Education for Kids (B4K):
Advocates however, are concerned that the process is moving too slowly and say immediate action needs to be taken to give graduating seniors a door to their futures.
“To be clear, without a legislative remedy, current high school seniors will be unable to graduate this spring,” said executive director for Better Education for Kids Shelley Skinner and Executive Director of the New Jersey Campaign for Achievement Now (JerseyCAN) Patricia Morgan in a joint statement. “Eliminating the test requirement is not an acceptable way to address this issue.”
