For the past seven years, Gov. Chris Christie has essentially level funded New Jersey’s public schools. He’s blithely ignored the School Funding Reform Act (SFRA), the smart, progressive school funding law that passed in 2008 with bipartisan support and is the only school aid formula approved by the State Supreme Court over the last 50 years.

Now the same governor who robbed public schools of $8 billion over seven years wants to move at break-neck speed to blow up SFRA, which is New Jersey’s best hope for restoring fairness and adequacy to school funding.

Read NJEA President Wendell Steinhauer’s full op-ed in the NJ Star Ledger to find out why that should not happen under this governor.
