FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Democrats for Education Reform Applauds Nomination of New Superintendent of Camden Public Schools
Newark, NJ, August 21st, 2013 – Democrats for Education Reform New Jersey (DFER-NJ) released the following statement today:
“Today’s nomination of Paymon Rouhanifard for Superintendent of Camden Public Schools is a bold and progressive step towards ensuring every child in Camden has access to a great public school,” said State Director of DFER-NJ, Kathleen Nugent. “For too long, the Camden school system has failed to provide the city’s families with quality options. Only with extensive reforms and effective implementation across the city can true success be realized.
“Changing a system that has consistently functioned one way for decades is difficult and substantial work. DFER-NJ applauds Governor Christie and Commissioner Cerf for their efforts behind the nomination of Paymon Rouhanifard. He is a leader who is deeply committed to revitalizing Camden’s public schools, with on the ground experience leading the reform of school systems from New York City, NY to Newark, NJ. His nomination is a significant win for the students, families, educators, and stakeholders of the city.
“Instead of dwelling on the failure of the public school system to date, let us now unite around the momentum created today to focus on what great schools can and will do for Camden’s families under strong leadership,” continued Nugent. “Rouhanifard is the right leader at the right time to restore the promise of quality public school options for Camden’s children.”
