School budgets were shot down by voters on Tuesday night state-wide. A little less that 42 percent were approved, the worst total since 1976, according to the New Jersey School Boards Association. Last year, they say about 73 percent were passed. The cuts in state aid by Gov. Chris Christie shined a big light on many of the school board elections and people got out to vote. All defeated school budgets go before the municipal government now who will advise further cuts or allow the budget to pass as is.
