18A:6-33.8. Findings, declarations
The Legislature finds and declares that:
a. It is the policy of the State of New Jersey to provide a thorough and efficient education to all students. Other factors notwithstanding, the quality of schools makes a difference in student achievement and all our schools can improve.
b. A growing body of research suggests means by which we can make our schools and classrooms more effective. While specific tactics may vary from school to school, the general strategy rests on collaborative planning and collegial efforts to affect the quantity and quality of academic work, expectations and standards established for students, the monitoring of academic progress and the recognition of superior achievement and performance by staff and students.
c. Efforts to improve the effectiveness of schools and classrooms require the commitment of the teachers, administrators, support staff, and school board members. The State can and should provide financial and technical support, but success depends on that commitment.
