“New Jersey’s formula for funding our schools continues to be unfair and inequitable,” Bateman said. “Manville and other underfunded school districts will once again fail to receive their fair share of funding under Governor Murphy’s proposed budget. A top-notch education is the key to success, expanding opportunities and enhancing outcomes for all students regardless of their economic status. Our students, teachers, and parents deserve better. I give Phil Murphy’s school funding plan an ‘F.’”
