“When we empower and support our deeply dedicated educators and educational support professionals, we’re not only upholding our commitment to provide a world-class public education to every New Jersey student, but we’re also investing in the foundation of our communities. That is why I am fighting to secure more education funding for our public schools and advocating for better pay to reflect educators’ invaluable contributions.” – Sen. Cory Booker to NJEA members
Cory Booker believes that a student’s ZIP code should not determine the educational and economic trajectory of their lives. During his time in the Senate, he has worked to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality education. From making sure our nation’s teachers and early childhood educators have the resources and support they need, to improving educational outcomes for vulnerable students, educational equity has been central to his work.
