I am shocked (in a good way).

TRENTON -- In a stunning shift, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled today that a new school aid formula can replace three decades of rulings that sent billions of dollars to the state's poorest communities.

The court unanimously held the state's plan for school aid -- the School Funding Reform Act adopted last year by lawmakers at the behest of Gov. Jon Corzine -- is "a constitutionally adequate scheme."

I say: hit the road, Corslime!

[L]awyers for those poor districts, dominated by cities like Newark, Jersey City, New Brunswick, Paterson and Camden, insisted the ruling will ensure a steady erosion of gains made over the past decade and harm the 300,000 children who attend school there.

"The formula that the court has upheld is a major setback for children in both the high-poverty, urban districts but also in the higher-spending districts," said David Sciarra, executive director of the Education Law Center which has argued the case on behalf of the Abbott students.
