After years of neglect, students in struggling schools have reason to hope

Gov. Murphy has inherited a school construction and repair crisis. Students across New Jersey attend schools that are unsafe, outdated and in urgent need of repair or replacement. NJEA has long urged the Schools Development Authority, the state agency charged with ensuring our students and members have safe and healthy schools in which to work and learn, to move more aggressively to deal with unacceptable conditions that exist in too many places.

Healthy Schools Now, an advocacy group that shares NJEA’s commitment to that issue, continues to lead the fight for better investment in New Jersey’s public school facilities.  Click here to read a recent Star-Ledger op-ed calling on Gov. Murphy to act decisively to address this critical issue.
