10 winners in new school funding plan

10 winners in new school funding plan

28 Haziran 2018 - 02:00

A new school funding plan approved by state lawmakers last week has some big winners -- so big, in fact, that some districts would see their state aid double in a single year. 

The proposal, awaiting the blessing of Gov. Phil Murphy, is aimed at making up for years of underfunding and inequity. The schools that will gain the most money have been chronically underfunded by the state, according to New Jersey's school funding formula. Other schools, however, should have seen a cut in state aid several years ago and would now lose aid.

Here's the list of the 10 school districts that would see the largest percentage increase in state aid for the upcoming school year. Scroll farther down to see the biggest dollar increases.
