The mission of the New Jersey Education Association is to advance and protect the rights, benefits, and interests of members. NJEA promotes a quality system of public education for all students.  

In a time when public education has been continuously attacked, morale of preservice educators is still high.  We have decided to share some thoughts, experiences, and feelings of our members that explain why we still want to teach, are involved in our union, and love public education.  

The preservice educators’ voices are strong, and public education is powerful.  Together, we are unstoppable.
