NJ Gov. Christie's says his new funding plan is fair: all children in the state would get exactly the same dollar amount–$6,599! Julia Sass Rubin of Rutgers University explains why Chris Christie's plan is a hoax and a swindle. The actual amount the plan would distribute is approximately $4,800 per student which is like saying the rich and the poor are equally permitted to sleep under bridges. Giving the same amount to children in rich and poor districts harms those with the greatest needs. The truth: the $9.1 billion state ed budget available to distribute across NJ, while protecting special education funding, also PROTECTS Charter Schools! Although experts pointed out the devastating impact that this plan would have on children with high rates of poverty, none verified the governor’s claim. Read the truth, something that escapes Christie and the GOP.
