Governor Christie visits 101.5
Gov. Chris Christie said failing, underpopulated schools in urban areas would close under his idea for redistributing school aid so that it’s equal per pupil in every municipality, but he said those districts would get a few years to adjust to reduced aid in ways that wouldn’t have to hurt students.
“I think there would be school closings. But school closings where it would be appropriate to close schools because they have too many schools open,” Christie said on New Jersey 101.5’s “Ask the Governor.”
