Were you against ‘over-testing’ in schools? If so, you may be interested in learning what changes the NJDOE are making to the requirements high schoolers must complete in order to graduate in NJ.
With all the court rulings, regulations, and back-room agreements occurring over these past few months regarding New Jersey’s graduation requirements, we can understand an overwhelming sense of confusion parents and high schoolers face. If your child is a current freshman or sophomore in high school you will want to pay attention as these changes will most affect them. PEP has asked two experts, Shelley Skinner of B4K and Patricia Morgan of JerseyCAN, to lay it all out in simple terms so that anyone and everyone can understand what is happening and how it may or may not affect your student.
Feel free to browse PEP’s other blogs and podcasts for a more in depth look into this situation if you are curious. This issue is still not fully resolved meaning more changes are still to come; so stay up to date by following B4K and PEP on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns you may have.
