Press from the Hands Off Our Future Rally
On June 9th, parents and supporters from KIPP New Jersey, North Star Academy, and other Newark charter schools held a rally at Assemblywoman Jasey’s office in Maplewood, NJ to express their displeasure for her sponsorship of A-4351 – a bill that would create a three year moratorium on charter school growth across the state. The event was also covered by the press. See below for links to each piece.
