Christie announces attempt to expand Harlem Children's Zone's child guidance program into more cities

Christie said HCZ leadership will convene an advisory group, led by Acting Higher Education Secretary Rochelle Hendricks, to deal directly with his administration and provide guidance and recommendations in an attempt to improve inter-agency coordination involving programs benefiting at-risk children.

Currently, New Jersey is the only state that has formed a partnership with Harlem Children’s Zone.

Harlem Children’s Zone’s mission is positive education outcomes for every child through effective schools and community programs, with the final result of graduation from college. The U.S. Department of Education’s Promise Neighborhoods initiative is premised upon the HCZ model.

If you look at Harlem Children's Zone's website, one of the points they talk about as part of their success formula is that they run Afterschool programs. Nothing against Harlem Children's Zone, I happen to think Afterschool programs are vital to improving educational outcomes!! But I simply find it amazing that the administration is pushing a program which includes Afterschool as a key part of their programming - if the Governor likes the Harlem Children's Zone model and recognizes their success, I just cannot fathom why NJ After 3 funding was cut to zero, especially with NJA3's well documented success.
