From Cathy Lindenbaum NJ PTA Vice President of Advocacy 

On February 12th the New Jersey State Board of Education at their meeting passed a resolution reaffirming their support of the Common Core State Standards.


As Parents of NJPTA we recognize that in order to succeed in the workplace our students need to be able to think, make decisions and solve problems.  It is our responsibility to ensure that our students’ are prepared with skills to engage in a complex work environment.
The Common Core State  Standards are relevant to the real world and focus on problem solving and critical thinking skills,  to ensure that our student can and will succeed in the workplace.
Prior to the Common Core, many students were passing all required tests and graduating, yet still require remediation in their post-secondary work. College and career-ready standards are critical for our students’ success.
