 This release was just sent from the District 27 Senate, which includes Senator Richard J. Codey, Assemblywoman Mila M. Jasey and Assemblyman John F. McKeon, who attended the rally against Hua Mei, the proposed Mandarin Immersion charter on January 6:

Senator Richard J. Codey, Assemblywoman Mila M. Jasey and Assemblyman John F. McKeon applaud Friday’s decision by state Department of Education Acting Commisioner Chris Cerf rejecting the Hua Mei charter school application.

The proposed Maplewood based Mandarin-immersion school would have drawn students from the South Orange\Maplewood and West Orange school districts, and potentially impacted Livingston and Millburn. All of these communities are part of District 27, represented by the three lawmakers.

“This is a victory for the people of our district who fought hard to oppose a charter school in one of our state’s highest performing school districts,” Codey (D-Essex\Morris) said. “We were glad to be able to lead the fight to stop and prevent funds from being diverted from our already cash-strapped public schools.”
