We Donít Buy It: Why New Jerseyans Will Reject Governor Chris Christieís Offer to Sell Out Urban Schools


by ZoŽ Burkholder ó July 01, 2016

This commentary offers a brief critique of Governor Chris Christie's proposed school funding formula. Placing it into historical perspective, the author argues that New Jerseyans will reject his proposal, which offers cash to middle class suburban families in the form of property tax relief, while eviscerating the budgets of urban school districts with high concentrations of poor and working class students of color. We refuse to go back to separate and unequal public schools.
