New Jersey has the fifth largest total of immigrants in the U.S., and the second highest per capita total. The vast majority (80%) has entered the U.S. with legal documents. Children who have immigrated to the U.S. are one of the fastest growing segments of the public school population. The Schumann Fund grant enabled the Network to hire a coordinator to focus on education policy and enable the Network to participate in New Jersey’s school improvement efforts.
