NJACTE Commitment to Social Justice

We wish to express our sincere regret and dismay at the brutal killing of George Floyd, as well

as other Black Americans, including Rayshard Brooks, Maurice Gordon, Breonna Taylor, and
Ahmaud Arbery. These deaths are the latest in a long history of violence perpetrated against
African-Americans in this country.

The members of the New Jersey Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (NJACTE) offer

our deepest condolences to Black Americans, who sadly are all too familiar with the grief, the
despair, and the bitterness that have accompanied our long history of structural racism in the
United States.

Unfortunately, structural racism is not limited to the justice system; our educational system

demonstrates these disparities as well. In our schools, Black Children receive less government
funding than White Children and are more likely to be suspended, placed in remedial classes, or

New Jersey is sixth in segregated schools nationally, despite having the most diverse population

in the country. Further, there is a significant shortage of Black Teachers, even though research
has demonstrated increased achievement when students are exposed to teachers of their race,
ethnicity, and gender. In fact, all students benefit from a diversified teacher workforce.

This is not a new issue, and these are not new questions. NJACTE has attempted to grapple with

the issues of systemic racism and injustice recently. In the past 24 months, our efforts have
included a commitment to diversifying the teacher workforce and organizing an annual
statewide conference with the New Jersey Department of Education to initiate conversations
around these critical issues (“Leadership for Diversity” conference and the annual “Convening
for Diversifying the Teaching Force”).

But clearly, more work needs to be done. The membership of the NJACTE joins with its national

organization the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE)
to recommit themselves to ensure justice for all children, to break down the walls of
segregation, and to diversify the teacher workforce.

We stand in solidarity with Black Americans in support of a more just society, one that offers

equal opportunities for all.

To innovate change means we will continue to engage in necessary, and sometimes

uncomfortable, conversations around equity and inclusion issues. Most importantly, we
will work toward fulfilling our commitments. Our work together will require significant
changes in our own behavior as we strive to restore social justice, to heal, and to create lasting
institutional changes.
