GREENWALD: URBAN HOPE AN EXAMPLE OF COOPERATIVE EDUCATION REFORM

(CAMDEN) – Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden) released the following statement Thursday on the planned signing of the Urban Hope Act:

“The signing of this Democratic bill developed in cooperation with education experts represents a leap forward for New Jersey education reform.
“Democrats know education progress is best built through consensus, not confrontation, and will use this approach going forward.
“We can no longer ignore how many children in Camden, Trenton and Newark are losing a chance at a strong future. Access to a good education is not a privilege, but a fundamental right. We will not waver from this belief.
“We have more work to do, but this is an example of how we can work together to find compromise to build a better future for our children.”
