Doherty plans town hall on school funding plan

Senator Michael Doherty, a member of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, will hold a town hall meeting on the merits of his school funding plan at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Clinton Township Middle School.

The Fair School Funding Plan, which is a proposed constitutional amendment, would provide equal school aid for each student, regardless of where the student resides.

In a release, Doherty, (R-23), Washington Township, said that New Jersey needs to establish a fair, simple, transparent, and straightforward educational funding formula that takes the income tax fund and distributes the fund equally to each student.
