Hoboken and Jersey City Welcome New Principals for the Day

Business leaders from the financial and real estate world went back to school on Friday as part of the Charter School Principal for a Day Program, initiated by Jersey City real estate developer SILVERMAN, in conjunction with the Jersey City & Hoboken Charter Schools Alliance, as well as the New Jersey Charter Schools Association.

“Charter schools are so important to our neighborhoods. Residents stay and raise their families here because of these strong schools,” says Paul Silverman, who has long been a supporter of education in Hudson County.

Carlos Perez, CEO and President of the NJCSA said: “We are thrilled that these business leaders want to take the time and effort to step up and see first-hand all the amazing things we do at New Jersey charter schools.”

“We think this is a great opportunity for our students to meet business leaders, especially in the financial industry, who can stress the importance of fiscal literacy,” said Colin Hogan, Head of School at Jersey City’s Learning Community Charter School.

At a reception on Friday afternoon, business leaders lauded the schools for the dedication, culture, and learning environment created by each school leader. You can see the business leaders-come-principals in action in our slideshow.
