Edison to lose $9.7 million in state school aid

Posted by edison1205 on March 17, 2010


Breaking news: Edison is slated to lose $9,743,671 in state aid for its schools for the 2010-11 school year. That represents a 55.8 percent reduction from the current year’s funding level.

This is sure to raise our taxes, and devastate our schools’ educational achievements, unless our elected representatives are able to reverse these cuts.

Apparently, anyone who believed yesterday’s speech by the Governor that the cut was going to be five percent — has been deceived.

And anyone who believed Education Commissioner Bret Schundler’s statements back on Feb. 18 that the cut would be fifteen percent — has also been deceived.  No, it’s a 55.8 percent cut!  And this, in a town that supported Gov. Christie in the Nov. election by over 500 votes!

Well, it’s not as if this is the first time that Republican officeholders have been accused of deceiving the public.
