TRENTON — Democratic lawmakers this week unveiled a school funding proposal that would affect most New Jersey districts’ state aid for the upcoming school year.

The plan, billed as a potential first step to solving the state’s school funding problems, has its winners, losers and plenty of school districts that wouldn’t see much of a difference either way.

Here are the Democratic plan’s 20 biggest winners for the upcoming school year based on the percentage a district’s state aid would change compared to Gov. Chris Christie’s budget proposal.

The plan would need Christie’s approval before taking effect.

Note: The list does not include non-operating school districts that send all students to other districts and receive little state aid.
