Fight over how NJ pays for public schools may end with plan that gives some more aid
Bergen Record – April 18, 2018
Acting Education Commissioner Lamont Repollet said during a hearing on Murphy’s proposed $37.4 billion budget that the governor would consider shifting money to underfunded districts from those that receive more than they should under the state’s school funding law. Those changes could translate into tax cuts for those communities gaining aid and tax hikes for those losing it. Repollet’s commitment, although lacking in details, was a concession to Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-Gloucester, who delayed Repollet’s confirmation last week over concerns he wasn’t addressing the funding imbalances quickly enough.
