“This is a solid first step to address the needs of students in school districts that have been flat-funded as their enrollments have exploded,” Beck said. “Of the 143 school districts that are more than 10-percent below the state’s ‘adequacy’ funding standard, 115 have seen enrollment growth, including Freehold and Red Bank. I appreciate the insight, cooperation and support of Governor Christie, Commissioner Hespe and Superintendents Tomazic and Rumage.”
