Please help SOSNJ protect NJ’s public schools


Save Our Schools NJ was founded in 2010, in response to Governor Chris Christie’s unprecedented attacks on one of the top education systems in the country. Since our inception, we have advocated for:

  • an end to PARCC and other forms of high-stakes standardized testing
  • fully-funding New Jersey’s school funding formula
  • common sense charter school reform — including local control over the approval process and increased transparency and accountability for charter schools
  • community schools, which enable public schools to provide much-needed services to students and their families.

We also helped defeat efforts to privatize our public schools via publicly funded vouchers that would divert funding from public education to pay for private and religious schools.

Christie’s remaining days as governor may be few, but the threats to public education persist, and we will continue our vigilance, to ensure that every New Jersey child has access to a high quality public education.

Please consider making an end-of-year contribution to support our work. You can donate today.

Throughout 2017, Save Our Schools NJ members:

We have some big plans for 2018 as well, and we hope we can count on you to help us see them through.

You can read about those plans over at the Network for Public Education in a piece we wrote for their Grassroots Education Network, highlighting the work ahead for our organization as New Jersey transitions to a new administration.

Save Our Schools NJ has not one, but two representatives on Governor-elect Murphy’s education transition team, and we have every intention of continuing to fight for our issues in Trenton in the new year.

Public education is at a critical juncture in our state, and we are prepared for the challenges ahead.
