About Us

The New Jersey Coalition for Inclusive Education (NJCIE) is a nonprofit established in 1989 by parents and professionals which supports families and schools in the quest to create neighborhood schools where children with disabilities and learning differences are welcomed as classmates, valued as learners and empowered to succeed. Today, inclusive educational practices are considered best practice for all children and part and parcel of school reform.

NJCIE is the only organization in New Jersey whose sole focus is inclusion. In a state challenged by a very separate system of education for children with disabilities, we began as a small group with a strong vision that every child with disabilities has the right to be included in classrooms with nondisabled peers. The power of this movement continues to grow and to spread as schools, families and communities recognize the positive impact that inclusive practices can have on improving education for all children.
