“New Jersey remained near the top among states for student performance on U.S. math and reading tests known as the “Nation’s Report Card,” despite a dip in scores in the past two years… The disparity is “troubling,” said Patricia Morgan, executive director of JerseyCan, an education-reform advocacy group.”
“What the NAEP results continue to show is that New Jersey must strive to be better,” Morgan said. “Far too many students in vulnerable communities don’t have access to the education they deserve. Equity in education must be a primary goal for all of us.”
