In “BREAKING: Murphy Administration Approves a New Public Charter School,” the NJ Education Report announces that Brilla Charter School was approved as a new charter school in Paterson, NJ. The approval is long awaited and much welcomed, as described by the New Jersey State Board of Education Andrew Mulvihill; “[a]fter almost four years we finally have a new charter school approved. It’s crazy that, with 36,000 students on waitlists for charter schools that this administration— that speaks so often about equity for all —has done so little to facilitate one of the great equalizers, new charter schools.” The article goes on to describe how Brilla schools educate a diverse student demographic that is serviced by an equally diverse teacher demographic.
