    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—For the past six years, nearly 1,000 New Brunswick elementary school children have been taking classes inside of a 100,000 square foot industrial warehouse that New Brunswick politicians like to call a school.

    And this year will be no different.

    Referred to as the “swing space,” the warehouse at 20 Van Dyke Avenue has served as a "temporary" school while the city and state failed to keep up with overcrowding.

    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—As the saying goes, "Teach a man how to catch a fish, he’ll be fed for a lifetime."

    And that's the underlying philosophy of the Intersect Fund, a non-profit organization focused on helping low-income entrepreneurs create their own small businesses. The organization's founders, Joe Shure and Rohan Mathew, former student editors at The Daily Targum, said were inspired by the staggering poverty rate in New Brunswick.
