(TRENTON) - Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-Burlington) has introduced a package of bills to create an innovative new approach to public education in New Jersey that would boost the performance of both students and teachers and attract quality educators to critical subject areas.
"We know that we're in an increasingly competitive global environment that begs us to step up our game," said Singleton. "Where once we were competing against other states for jobs and commerce, we now face fierce competition from countries like China and India where a heavy educational emphasis is placed on science, math and technology. If we want to maintain our competitive advantage and prepare youngsters to succeed in the global economy we need to focus our efforts on these critical areas."
