About this episode:
School funding in the state of New Jersey can be very complicated, making it difficult for many people to understand how it works, and more importantly how to fix it. Why do some schools receive more funding than others? How is money allocated in that district? What is adjustment aid? The list of questions goes on. In this episode, we aim to help our listeners better understand this topic by inviting a school funding expert, Janellen Duffy to explain the formula used and why certain areas receive the funding they do. We also discuss ways in which the public can help their schools get the funding they need to better support their students and staff.
