Judicial report to New Jersey Supreme Court concludes governor’s cuts to school funding unconstitutional

Reportedly, a report from Bergen County Superior Court Judge Peter Doyne concludes state aid cuts have left school districts across New Jersey unable to provide a constitutionally mandated “thorough and efficient” education, especially for the state’s poorer students. Doyne was appointed by the state supreme court to determine the constitutionality of Governor Chris Christie’s cuts in financial aid to the state’s public schools. It is now left to the supreme court to decide what, if anything, to do with the report’s conclusions.

Here is a similar story

The next New Jersey Supreme Court ruling on whether the state must provide more funding to its public schools could affect more than just the 31 urban Abbott school districts.

Among those paying close attention are another 187 mostly suburban and rural districts, many of which have been under-funded for years, including 14 districts in Atlantic County, seven in Cumberland County and two each in Cape May and southern Ocean County.
