NJEA GETS BEHIND SECOND “RACE TO THE TOP”

The New Jersey Education Association is supporting the state’s effort in the federal “Race to the Top” program. The union had not supported the state during its first application. The NJEA is the largest teachers union in New Jersey. Districts that participate and help the state would receive $100,000 each at least, if New Jersey was selected as a winner. Race to the Top is a federal program designed to reward schools with forward thinking plans and good results in the classroom.
