The following is information released by the NJ Department of Education – The American Academy of Pediatrics reports that by the age of 18, the average American child will have viewed 200,000 acts of violence on television. Some studies suggest that exposure to violence in the media increases the chances that children will behave more aggressively, experience more anger and hostility, think more about aggression and violence, and become “numb” to images of violence.  In response to this concern and in an effort to increase awareness, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed P.L.2013, c.146, which requires the New Jersey Department of Education to prepare and make available on the department’s website information on how a parent can limit a child’s exposure to violence on television, cell phones, computers, and other electronic devices.

The New Jersey Department of Education has published a toolkit for educators and parents related to the Common Core State Standards – click here.  The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) identify the specific skills and knowledge that all students are expected to learn, know, and be able to do in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.  The New Jersey State Board of Education adopted the CCSS in 2010 and implemented a four-year timeline for educators to learn and begin to adapt their own lesson plans and curriculum.
