Issues that matter to New Jersey

NJEA members, like all New Jersey residents, have a lot at stake in this election.

The next governor will make critical decisions about education policy and school funding that will determine the future of our public schools.

Sen. Barbara Buono will pursue a positive public education agenda that helps reverse the damage Governor Christie has done to our schools. Sen Buono will get our schools moving forward again. Learn more about Barbara Buono, then go to gardenstateforward.org to see how you can get involved in this election.
