SCHOOL FUNDING FAIRNESS COMMISSION PROPOSED BY LEGISLATURE

On Thursday the state legislature, led by N.J. Senate President Steve Sweeney, introduced legislation to bring all school districts throughout the state to full funding within five years. The proposed legislation would create the State School Aid Funding Fairness Commission, which would study current funding laws and make recommendations on how to bring all the state’s school districts up to state-defined levels of “adequacy”. According to current formulas, it would take $2 billion of state aid to fully fund the 80 percent of school districts that are under-funded.
