About this episode:
The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) and our Commissioner of Education, Lamont Repollet, are embarking on a review of New Jersey public charter schools. This opens up the opportunity to validate the true nature regarding these institutions. Who better to hear opinions from than parents, teachers, administration, and experts in our state’s charter schools? Over the next several weeks, Parents Engaging Parents will be hosting parent, teacher, and administrator guests from cities throughout NJ to speak about our public charter schools and their impact on students.
In this episode, we have the pleasure of interviewing the interim President at the New Jersey Charter School Association (NJCSA) — Harry Lee. We will discuss what the review process is and what parent leaders and advocates should be doing to help. Listeners will get the facts so they’re empowered to fight for their child’s access to a high-quality education.
We cannot be complacent with unequal funding and underlying threats of pausing charter growth.
Listen now to arm yourself with the facts.
