Take a virtual tour of New Jersey public schools with our interactive report. As you’ll discover, even though New Jersey far outpaces the national average in per-pupil funding, we’re not getting the maximum return on those dollars. Less than half of our black eighth-graders are performing at grade level in math. On the Nation’s Report Card, just 43 percent of fourth-graders statewide scored proficient in reading. And though SAT participation has risen slightly over the last six years, performance is stagnant.

We have work to do–starting with building awareness of the true state of New Jersey public schools. So read the report, get informed, and then share it with your family and friends.
