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.
