Governor Murphy signed school meals and chronic absenteeism bills into law. These laws will assist students in maximizing their educational potential. Once again, ACNJ’s advocacy efforts have paid off for kids!
We may not hear much about “love” amid discussions of PARCC testing and career readiness in high schools, but as high school teachers and administrators listen to youth voices, they may find that high schools can learn a surprising amount from early childhood models.
What an amazing two weeks for child advocacy – more money for preschool in Governor Murphy’s proposed budget, bills addressing chronic absenteeism as well as access to school breakfast on a fast track in Trenton and a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Abbott preschool. Plus – it’s official! ACNJ is part of the national Think Babies campaign.
