NJ schools 2nd in Quality Counts ranking

For at least the 4th consecutive year, New Jersey’s public schools ranked second nationally in Education Week’s annual Quality Counts report.  That study, which looks at academic performance, school funding, and a factor it calls “chance for success,” ranks all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  New Jersey consistently performs well across all categories.

NJEA President Marie Blistan applauded New Jersey’s strong showing. “We are proud that yet another nationally-known publication has ranked New Jersey’s public schools among the very best in America,” said Blistan. “That’s a testament to the incredible work done by the women and men who work in our public schools. As president of NJEA, I’m proud to represent 200,000 of those dedicated professionals and honored to advocate alongside them to ensure that our schools remain strong and successful for the students, families and communities we serve. We are proud of our accomplishments, but we will never stop striving to do even better.”
