NJ Spotlight--Who Gets Helped, Who Gets Hurt: Murphy’s Proposed School Aid in Budget Plan

The governor has allocated $9 billion in state aid for public education for 2020-2021. Here’s a chance to see how your district does

The Murphy administration yesterday released the district-by-district breakdown of proposed state aid for public education in 2020-2021. The total comes to $9.01 billion or close to a quarter of Gov. Phil Murphy’s overall $40 billion spending plan.

More than 370 districts would see increases under the governor’s plan, and close to 200 would face cuts in the total state aid they now receive.

Star Ledger--Here’s how much money every N.J. school district gets in state funding shakeup

The governor’s $9 billion investment in K-12 schools increases funding by $336 million, but only 64% of districts will receive more money.EJA

New Jersey’s school funding shakeup continues with Gov. Phil Murphy’s 2021 state budget proposal, producing another round of winners and losers.

The annual changes range from a $55 million increase for Newark Public Schools to a $55 million decrease for Jersey City, which is losing state dollars because of its strengthened local tax base. (Find out how much Murphy proposed for your district in the search tool below.)
