What impact have charter schools had in your district? What should state legislators and those responsible for regulating charter schools know as they consider changes to the law?

It has been more than twenty years since the enactment of the Charter School Program Act of 1995, the law establishing charter schools in New Jersey. The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is embarking in a statewide review of the charter law to gather public feedback to identify “which priorities are most important to those impacted by charter schools in New Jersey.”
