Governor Christie’s budget proposal could bring a record $9 billion in education spending for New Jersey’s cash strapped school districts.
The proposed budget includes $100 million more than last year for New Jersey’s K-12 schools, a much needed increase for the districts still recovering from previous cuts in education spending. Dr. Richard Bozza, executive Director of the New Jersey Association of School Administrators, says while it’s not enough to cover every need in every district, it will bring much needed relief.
“This budget anticipates that a substantial majority of school districts about 375 will have actual increases in aid and that no district in the state will have less aid than it has this year.”
Bozza says if the budget is approved, the money will be distributed based on each district’s individual needs.
