Bramnick introduces constitutional amendment to make sure your kids can go to local neighborhood schools

Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick introduced a constitutional amendment Thursday protecting the rights of parents to send their children to local schools. The amendment is in response to a lawsuit brought forward challenging the law requiring that students attend schools in their own districts.

“Unelected judges in Trenton should never block children from attending their neighborhood schools,” said Bramnick. “Taking away a parent’s option to send their child to a school in their home district is not negotiable.”

The legislation proposes a constitutional amendment to prohibit forcing students to attend a public school other than the district where the student resides.
