Chris Christie administration were supposed to compare school budget data from 2008 to 2009. The administration compared the current year to 2011, according to data obtained by the Star-Ledger. This mistake alone would have put the state in the top 10 and would have earned the state $400 million. New Jersey finished 11th. The application did lose points in other areas as well.
