In the wake of COVID-19 restrictions that will likely keep New Jersey children out of their classrooms for weeks to come, NJTV, New Jersey’s public television network, announced the launch of a new series of on-air instruction called NJTV Learning Live. Weekdays starting this Monday, April 6th, kids can tune in to NJTV for on-air classes, taught by New Jersey’s public school teachers. Hosted by Haddonfield High School’s Kimberly Dickstein Hughes, recipient of the 2019-2020 State Teacher of the Year Award, on-air classes will be taught daily for grades 3 through 6 from 9 am to 1 pm on NJTV. The initiative’s goal: to enhance the remote learning New Jersey students are already doing with their local schools.

NJTV’s on-air classroom lessons will be livestreamed and archived on the network’s website, To date, dozens of teachers from across New Jersey have been recruited to help deliver and prepare content in multiple subject areas, including math, science, English language arts, social studies and physical education. The network is prepared to provide up to 10 weeks of remote learning programming, which will see most kids through to the end of this school year.

NJTV Learning Live is presented in partnership with the NJEA and the New Jersey Department of Education and made possible with support from RWJ Barnabas Health, NJM Insurance Group, Fuel Merchants Association of NJ and New Jersey Realtors.

NJTV Learning Live further expands WNET’s K-12 At Home Learning resources for the New York metro area, which includes Monday-Friday daytime educational broadcast lineups on WLIW21 and WLIW WORLD, companion lessons, activities, tips on making TV time learning time, and more for educators and families, including PBS LearningMedia resources, at Links to NJTV, WLIW21 and WLIW WORLD program schedules and channel lineups are available at
