PRIDE in Public Education is a campaign that shares the successes of New Jersey’s public schools while building community support and involvement.

PRIDE programs cover a variety of topics and areas, including combatting privatization, passing school budgets, addressing drug and alcohol issues in the community, and helping to keep teen drivers safe. For more information about PRIDE programs and how to use them to increase community awareness of the great things happening in our public schools, contact us below.


PRIDE is proud to support the NJEA FAST, or Families and Schools Together work for children, program. The goal of FAST is to involve parents and families in their children’s education through programs and events to help improve student achievement and ensure that families feel welcome and connected to our schools.
