School Funding Implications

By Marie DeNoia Aronsohn

Are public schools, the state supreme court and the state budget on a collision course?  That’s the question now that the court-appointed special master has advised the state’s highest court that last year’s nearly billion dollar cut to public schools violated the right to a thorough and efficient education for the state’s most vulnerable kids.

    It is time for our state legislators to FINALLY stand up and defend our state constitution, which they took an oath to obey. The NJ constitution states clearly in Article 8, Section 4, “The Legislature shall provide for the maintenance and support of a thorough and efficient system of free public schools for the instruction of all children in the state between the ages of five and eighteen years.” Our legislators must get some starch in their spines and tell Judge Doyne & the Supreme court to stand down! The Supreme court had NO constitutional power to order pre-school for three and four year olds. They also had no authority to order $8.6 BILLION of school construction which eventually was an enormous and corrupt waste of our tax dollars. New York legislators told their Supreme court to pound salt on their school spending mandates and our NJ leaders need to follow their lead.
