Launching an initiative “for the next frontier of equality,” the Orthodox Union led a “mini-mission” to Trenton to push for measures that would help reduce the cost of a private parochial education.

A group of eight Middlesex County residents joined with OU Advocacy-NJ in meetings with local legislators and state officials.

They asked support of various measures promoting “parity” between public and nonpublic schools, including district funding for programs and services for special-needs students in religious schools, educational tax credits, and increasing state aid for such non-religious items as nursing, technology, and textbooks.
