Corzine plan to increase cash to 7 Abbott districts

Officials say they still don't know how suburban schools will fare

Gov. Jon Corzine is expected this week to unveil a school aid plan that would grant funding increases to seven of the 31 traditional Abbott districts, a sharp departure from the court-ordered system that for nearly a decade sent annual funding increases to all of these poor, urban districts.

The towns expected to see increases are: Union City, Garfield, Perth Amboy, Orange, Harrison, West New York and New Brunswick, according to legislators who have met with the governor or have been apprised of the plan.

Can you believe this????????? Will our kids really see any of this money? Better beware, it might all be going into the Mayors and Higgins pocket.

Read the whole story, this money is for at "risk" kids. What about the kids that are not at RISK???? the ones that can speak English, or don't have emotional and behavior problems... If the officials really cared about our town and put limits on who deserves to benifit from additional funding, they really need to take a look and see what some of these at risk students are doing.. as young as 10 or 11 they are running the streets, selling and using drugs, and causing more problems than they are worth.

With the redevelopment going on, and all the upscale housing and retail they want to bring to Harrison, why are we still declared an "Abbott" district???? I want to know

The people of Harrison have to require the Superintendent's office on William Street to release for Public Information the Salary Guide for the Administrators in the district. Take a good hard look at what these clowns' salaries are and what they produce year in and year out. It's more than Theft, where is Chris Christie with his State investigation of Peter B. and the rest of the shit in our school system. Look at our taxes and where that's going and try to equate the reputation of our school system. Now the State is going to dump more money into these clowns pockets . Get rid of this current collection of do nothing Administrators that we subsidize for showing up and drinking coffee. Stop in the main office of any School in the district and check out the Administrative staff and try to imagine anything productive?

We are still an Abbott district because the revedelopment isn't finished. The Abbot designation has a lot to do with the % of your current real estate taxes going to education. The tax base will increase when the builders finish, thus more taxes and less of a % going to education in years to come may get us out of being an Abbott District. The majority of the Abbott monies received do go to help our students directly or indirectly.
