$7.9 Million Win for Preschoolers

NJ’s 31 impoverished Abbott districts will now receive an additional $7.9 million in preschool education aid, according to the Education Law Center, their primary advocates.

Burke litigation, that charged that NJ wasn’t meeting its fiduciary obligations under the School Funding Reform Act, which requires increases in preschool aid.
