Find Out Today About Education Board News
Today’s education board news features a project that the New Jersey education department led. Called Skilljobs, the program aimed at promoting job creation in education in New Jersey. In June of 2021, the education board held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to formally open the Skillstown Career Advancement Zone. At that time they announced the creation of a new jobs center to be located in Skillstown, which will serve as a central location for both out-of-state students and those in New Jersey looking to relocate.
Job creation was the buzzword in Skillstown, and several months later that buzz grows even louder. The education board held an event to celebrate the opening of the new center, touting the project as a success. Unfortunately for the education board and their hopeful job creators, the job creation they were hoping for turned out to be a mirage. There was no room for the creation of jobs at Skillstown.
The reason? Money. The education board had to find $300,000 in private funding to operate the center, which is just a few hundred thousand dollars. When you add up the costs of renting a commercial space in Skillstown, renting commercial office space in New Jersey itself, paying for payroll, and making daily business decisions, the New Jersey education board would be looking at a grand total of about seven figures before the center opened for business. Even with grants and scholarships, the board was not looking at breaking even.
This brings us to today. Education board news today features a story about how New Jersey parents are concerned about the funding that will be used to help fund the opening of the Skillstown Career Advancement Zone. The news today reports on how concerned parents have become over the lack of funding that has been reported in recent months. In fact, one school board chairperson is quoted as saying that the lack of funding is “unacceptable”.
Concerned parents have taken their complaints to the New Jersey education board. They are upset because they feel as though the state is not doing enough to help open the career advancement center. In the past, the education board has said that the center will not receive any state aid because it was not a public facility. However, the new reports indicate otherwise. As a result, the board is changing its stance and stating that the center will receive state aid.
The change in the state’s position on the education board news comes as a surprise to many people. According to the education board news report, the changes were prompted by complaints that arose from angry parents. It also came as a surprise to those who had criticized the New Jersey education board for taking a negative view of the center. According to those who have criticized the New Jersey education board, the new reports make the agency look weak and incompetent. While those who are happy about the changes are pleased that the career development center is receiving state aid, they admit that the education board still has a long way to go in making sure that all students have access to high-quality educational opportunities.
In response to the criticism, the New Jersey education board issued another news release saying that they would now review each of the cases that were highlighted in the initial news release. According to the release, the education board will not be releasing the names of the students or the case numbers at this time. They stated that they would review all of the cases based on the procedures outlined in the Universal Default Clause. Those procedures outline how the education board determines which cases should be closed and which must be continued. All cases that were closed due to unclear reasons will still be reviewed.
