New Jersey City University formally launches The Urban Education and Teacher Unionism Policy Project with publication of the first Policy Brief explaining the Project’s mission. NJCU continues its commitment to urban schools, students, and teachers by creating a space for dialogue among scholars and activists about the intersection of urban education reform and teacher unionism. The Policy Project will publish concise, research-based critical analyses of issues to further strong, mutually respectful alliances between teachers unions and communities of color about historic inequalities in education.
The Policy Project has a distinguished advisory board of leading scholars and activists. Dr. Lois Weiner, Professor of Elementary and Secondary Education, serves as the project's director, and brings a long record of scholarship and advocacy about both teacher unionism in K-12 schools and the education of urban teachers.
