A Message From Our Campaign.
We have no chance of changing the flawed education system without the community joining forces with the school administrators, students and our Jersey City school board. We need to change the mindset of the students and show them that success is possible in addition to giving them a voice on the board so that they buy into the policies that it enacts. As a prior student of JCPS I understand the mindsets of these students better than anyone else running for election in recent history if not ever in JCBOE history. Our issues and platform reach far greater than Wards A,B,C,D,E or F but instead are more focused on the unity of Jersey City's myriad cultures and distinct perspectives. I want to help build one united Jersey City and for that we need a complete overhaul of the education system by introducing new ideas. But, of course, it is not possible without the efforts of all parts of Jersey City. As the Yoruba proverb states, it takes a village to raise a child.
