Statement as released from Barbara Keshishian, President, New Jersey Education Association:
New Jersey is a national leader in the investments we make in K-12 public education, with great teachers and support professionals who prepare our kids so they are well equipped for college.
Unfortunately, the state has not continued that investment in higher education. A high quality education provides an opportunity for every child to succeed, and by making this investment we are laying the foundation for a bold new workforce that will be prepared for the jobs of the future.
NJEA is encouraging its members to vote 'Yes on 1.'
Barbara Keshishian, President, New Jersey Education Association
