For at least the 4th consecutive year, New Jersey’s public schools ranked second nationally in Education Week’s annual Quality Counts report!! That study, which looks at academic performance, school funding, and a factor it calls “chance for success, ranks all 50 states and the District of Columbia. New Jersey consistently performs well across all categories.
NJEA President Marie Blistan applauded New Jersey’s strong showing. “We are proud that yet another nationally-known publication has ranked New Jersey’s public schools among the very best in America,” said Blistan.

Some words of wisdom by Founding BMWED President, John T. Wilson -- “Labor unions stand for high wages and improved conditions of life, physically, mentally, morally and socially. The skilled mechanic who receives high wages and spends his earnings to maintain a well- regulated home assists and encourages every branch of legitimate business enterprise. He spends his surplus earnings for books that will instruct the members of his household and for Pictures, furniture, bric-a-brac, etc., that will beautify and make comfortable his home. He patronizes the merchant and the tradesman, as well as the institutions of learning. He is a respected citizen, a useful member of society, a credit and benefit to any country.” #ThrowbackThursday#TBT#Solidarity#UnionStrong#BMWED#Railroad

ASA Philip Randolph. When you talk about the Civil Rights Movement you hear MLK, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Thurgood Marshall... Let's talk about the man. A Philip Randolph was essential to the March on Washington. He also organized the first black labor movement, the Brotherhood of sleeping car Porters. He was a Titan when it comes to unionism, and should not be forgotten!#unionism #unionstrong#civilrights#nalc#aflcio
Santorini, Black Beach. 💗
This beach healed me. This beach brought a calm that I didn’t know excited. The water? The rocks? The island? Not sure but I take myself back here consistently. ✌🏻
These two boys keep my feet so deeply rooted to the ground and I’m so grateful that I get to be there mama. .
I cannot believe our baby will be 12 Sunday!!! What an amazing adventure it’s been so far! 💗
