New Jersey Education Organizing Collaborative
152 Market Street, Suite 208
NJEOC is a coalition of parents, community members, and allies from Newark, Jersey City, Paterson and Asbury Park.
We believe that all children—regardless of where they live— deserve a quality education that is built on academic excellence and prepares children to live and work as full members of society. We also believe that children in schools and communities negatively affected by social and economic inequalities should be guaranteed resources that will ensure high achievement and broaden available opportunities for their adult lives after high-school. By systematic grassroots organizing and community leadership development in Newark, Jersey City, and Paterson, NJEOC is working to engage community voices in school reform and public education policy change.
