|The NJ State Board of Education has been left to stagnate for far too long! |
It has been over five years since a new member was confirmed to the NJSBOE. The NJSBOE makes important decisions that impact educators and students – including on important classroom issues like the ongoing use of SGOs.
Enough is enough!
Governor Murphy has nominated three highly qualified, passionate public education advocates, but they have yet to be confirmed or even given a fair hearing.
It’s time for the NJ Senate to step up and make the change our students deserve!
Email your State Senator today. Tell them: it’s time to confirm Mary Bennett, Kwanghee Jung and Claudine Keenan to the State Board of Education!

|Can you believe it? Three months after the EdTPA bill UNANIMOUSLY passed both houses of the Legislature, it’s STILL not law! What’s the holdup now? Because the Governor recently returned the bill to the Legislature with some minor tweaks, the Senate and Assembly each need to take one last vote to approve those changes and finally, officially end EdTPA for good in New Jersey. It’s October tomorrow. Both houses are meeting this month, but neither has yet scheduled a vote on this bill. If they don’t do it the very next opportunity, it could extend the process by weeks or more, leaving potential educators in limbo as the school year goes on without them. Please take one minute today to contact key legislators and ask them to act now. It’s really that simple, but it has to happen. Thank you in advance, and have a great weekend! – The NJEA Action Team|
