N.J. Board of Ed. to Allow Charter Schools for Single-Gender Students

Last Edited:

Single-gendered charter schools could be coming to New Jersey.

On Wednesday, July 5th, the New Jersey Board of Education approved to allow charter schools in the state to open for only boys or only girls.

Schools that want to make this transition must first prove a compelling reason for limiting enrollment based on gender.

The change is part of a series of updates to the State's Charter School Law proposed by Governor Chris Christie.

Charter school operators have proposed an all-boys charter school in Atlantic City, but it is unclear on whether it will be approved to open under the new rule.
