Sen. Buono to hold public hearing on school cuts

Posted by edison1205 on January 19, 2011

Senator Barbara Buono, joined by 19th District Assemblymen Peter Barnes and Patrick Diegnan will hold a public hearing in Edison Thursday, Jan. 20, to give students, parents, teachers and residents an opportunity to share how the Governor’s $1 billion cut to public education has impacted their lives and their schools.  The hearing is at Edison High School and runs from 6:00 to 8:30 pm.

According to a press release from the Senator, she wants to get a better sense of the impact of Chris Christie’s public school cuts.  She wants to hear “about the impact of these cuts and feel their stories are vital in order to help gain a full appreciation of the consequences these cuts have had on education.”

Buono’s hearing will also touch on the state’s school funding formula, of which she was a key author.  The formula was not fully funded in this budget cycle, and the State Supreme Court has issued an order raising serious questions about whether this was proper.

Buono said that “all members of the public are invited to attend and share their stories for the public record.”
