Safe Schools for New Jersey
All Schools Should Be Safe Places Where All Children Can Achieve Their Personal Best In All Areas
Message To: Governor Jon S. Corzine Anne Milgram, Attorney General Lucille E. Davy, Commissioner, Department of Education An amendment to the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD), signed in January 1992, included "Affectional or Sexual Orientation". The law clearly states that the following are covered under Public Accommodations: "…public library, kindergarten, primary and secondary school, high school, academy, college and university, or any educational institution under the supervision of the regents of the state of New Jersey." Bills processed in the Senate and Assembly in June, '02, require school districts to adopt harassment and bullying prevention policies to prevent violence in the schools and requires the attention of all officials responsible, and we hope concerned, for the safety of our children and teachers. The bills were consolidated with A.1874 which passed in the Assembly on June 20, 2002 with a vote of 74-0-2 and the Senate on June 24, 2002 with a vote of 38 to 0, and was signed by Governor McGreevey on September 6, 2002. We are concerned for the safety of our students and teachers and know that without the full support of Governor Corzine, the Attorney General, and Commissioner, Department of Education, the above laws will not be fully implemented and monitored.
