Action Alert: Assembly Bill 211 - STEM Reimbursement
The New Jersey Catholic Conference has issued an Action Alert regarding Assembly Bill 211. This bill establishes a loan reduction program for PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS who meet certain academic requirements and teach Science, Technology, Engineering, and/or Mathematics subjects, or special education, while failing to include nonpublic school teachers in any opportunity for the reimbursement. We are making every effort to get the Assembly version amended to INCLUDE OUR QUALIFIED TEACHERS in the grant program because of the stated purpose of the bill to increase quality STEM education in all of New Jersey’s schools.
Please click the link below to read to full Action Alert, including contact information for the members of the Assembly Science, Innovation, and Technology Committee.
