National Alliance

Public charter schools in New Jersey receive nearly a quarter less in revenue per pupil than the state’s traditional school districts, according to a new report released today by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. The data pinpoints Newark and Trenton charter schools as facing the most severe inequities in the state, with each receiving 44 percent and 38 percent less, respectively, per pupil than the cities’ school districts.
