  • A Foundation created and initially funded by the NJEA in 2006 Its mission is to empower teachers to lead change so that all children have access to a high quality education One aspect of that mission is to work with teachers to spread and improve successful programs so that all students benefit
  • Significant continual improvement in quantitative measures: AP exams taken; AP exams passed; state tests passed; and SAT subject test scores High levels of student interest in science and math based on elective choices and college majors High student and teacher morale An ability to “grow its own” great teachers on an ongoing basis along with low turnover of current teachers
