Too many New Jersey students remain trapped in chronically failing school districts, and many will have a hard time recovering from this early obstacle to reach their full potential.

We believe that after decades of false promises, families deserve new opportunities for their children to succeed.

Senate Republican solutions will ensure that every New Jersey student has the opportunity to receive the good education they deserve.
