Save Our Schools NJ will host a town hall forum in Princeton on June 9, titled "The Education Games."
The forum will discuss the following questions:
- Are NJ communities losing local Democratic control of public education?
- How will the proposed state budget permanently underfund public schools?
- Are nationally discredited virtual charter schools coming to New Jersey?
Guests will include Princeton Public Schools Superintendent Judith Wilson, Jennifer Keyes-Maloney of the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association, Julia Sass-Rubin of Save Our Schools, and the 16th District legislators have been invited to attend.
The event will be moderated by Princeton Township Mayor Chad Goerner.
The forum will be held on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Labyrinth Books, 122 Nassau Street in Princeton.
Save Our Schools (saveourschoolsnj.org) formed in 2010 in response to the governor’s budget, which cut $1.1 billion from the state education budget. The group worked in Princeton to pass the regional school budget and has expanded across central New Jersey and throughout the state.
