January 11, 2023: League of Women Voters of New Jersey Education Committee submitted comments
regarding the proposed changes to Chapter15, Bilingual Education, N.J. Administrative Code.
The League of Women Voters of New Jersey believes that the system of elementary and secondary education must be fiscally and educationally accountable to New Jersey citizens. Therefore, public funds should not be used through vouchers or direct payments, tax credits or other fiscal incentives or equivalent financial instruments to support students attending non-public schools.
A commitment to civic engagement and voting starts early! That is why we support legislation that strengthens civics education.
