2013 Newark Education Policies and Issues Compendium
Beyond "aligning and focusing resources," and "holding accountable all who are responsible for educating children," the Newark Trust for Education seeks to raise the level of civic discourse around education issues in Newark.
We express our commitment to civic discourse by providing neutral space for the rigorous exchange of ideas, informed by substantive knowledge of policies and issues.
What follows is not "everything you ever wanted or needed to know" about education in Newark. The 2013 Newark Education Policies and Issues Compendium offers citizens, civic stewards, and candidates, clear, concise explanations of 9 complex and timely Newark education issues.
Over time, the Compendium will expand to include additional topics and information. To the best of our ability and knowledge we have avoided language that advocates, recommends, or suggests that one perspective or idea is more valuable than another. For additional references, and/or more information on any or all of these issues, please visit the "Resources" page of our website, newarktrust.org.

As we continue to work with the Newark schools in the Shared Campuses this school year, we strive to provide you with case studies and articles that help to inform the ways in which co-location works in other districts around the country. Check back regularly for updates.
