Parents Rally in Trenton

More than 500 charter school parents met with legislative leaders and rallied in support of their children's charter schools down in Trenton on March 26. They came from all over the state--Camden, Atlantic City, Newark, Paterson, and Jersey City, just to name a few of their home cities. This gathering--the largest in the 20-plus year history of charter schools--also featured significant speeches by Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senate Education Committee Chair Theresa Ruiz, Assembly Education Committee Chair Pamela Lampitt,  Senator Declan O'Scanlon , Assembly Budget Committee Chair Eliana Pintor, and Deputy Speaker Gary Schaer.
