According to the new ranking by U.S. News & World Report, New Jersey tops all states in public education.
In a news release from Governor Murphy, he stated, “Investments in our students are investments in the future of our state, and I am incredibly proud that our schools have been ranked number one in the nation.”
“Today’s recognition by U.S. News & World Report proves that students across New Jersey—starting with our youngest learners—are given the opportunity to achieve long-term success. I would also like to thank the educators who work tirelessly to make sure that our students receive the best possible education.”
Last year, New Jersey came in second place according to the U.S. News & World Report, right behind Massachusetts.
