  2. About time. There is zero proof that overfunding lower income or lower performing school districts has had any positive impact on students or the quality of education in those districts. It’s time to divide the pie fairly to the benefit of all students regardless of the socioeconomic status of their parents.

  4. Sounds good on the surface. Can we really pull the funding from low performing schools? Paterson is already laying off teachers and aides. There is nothing left to cut.
