NJEA has been a staunch advocate for a state school finance system for preschool through post-secondary education that is adequate, equitable, predictable, and sustainable.

Along with other education organizations and interest groups, NJEA has consistently called on the state to follow and fully fund the School Funding Reform Act of 2008 (SFRA), which was passed with bipartisan support, input from education stakeholder groups, and upheld by the New Jersey Supreme Court.

If the state met its obligations to schools as required under the SFRA funding formula, schools would have adequate resources and citizens could experience tax relief since some of the burden would be lifted from communities.
