STOP State Aid Cuts!
NJ Spotlight News Op-Ed: Emergency. Our Elected Officials Must Reexamine the School Funding Formula
School superintendents argue the funding formula is arbitrary and shortsighted. And that if it stands, a half million students and the schools they attend will suffer more hardship.
SOS MISSION STATEMENT
The Support Our Students (SOS) coalition of school districts throughout the state being negatively impacted by the reduction in state adjustment aid shall advocate with our legislators, and convey our message to the public to ensure that ALL 1.4 million students in New Jersey receive the quality education that they deserve and are entitled to in accordance with the state’s mandate for a thorough and efficient education. This effort shall include supporting increased state aid for those districts who have been underfunded.
Our effort shall be sustained and inclusive of all stakeholders focusing on outcomes that result in educational services and programming being maintained for our school communities while seeking fiscally responsible solutions.
