There is now a compelling need for prompt judicial relief. Accordingly, this Court should immediately enter a prospective order directing the State to fully implement the SFRA formula, as enacted and approved in Abbott XX, by providing full funding for the 2011-12 school year and two years thereafter, and by then conducting the three-year statutory review of the formula's efficacy, as previously mandated by this Court. Only then can the promise of the SFRA, anticipated by this Court in Abbott XX, be fulfilled through the provision of adequate funding to ensure a thorough and efficient education to all New Jersey school children, and particularly at-risk children, wherever they may reside.From Education Law Center's Final Brief in response to Judge Peter Doyne's conclusion that Gov. Christie public school aid cuts in 2010-2011 violated the School Funding Reform Act and were, thus, unconstitutional.
