The 125-member political action committee of the 200,000 member New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) today voted to endorse 54 candidates for election to the New Jersey Legislature this November.
“Now, more than ever, NJEA members understand the vital importance of electing pro-public education candidates,” said NJEA President Wendell Steinhauer. “We have seen the impact of short-sighted policies such as the increased emphasis on standardized testing and the failure to fully fund public employee pensions. Those are the wrong choices for New Jersey and they threaten to undermine our great public schools, which are among the best in the nation.
“Our members are very clear: it’s time for the Legislature to make responsible decisions about the future of our state.”
