A Big “Phew” from School DistrictsMarch 11, 2009
Corzine’s Hat TrickMarch 12, 2009
As if school boards didn’t have enough financial angst, NJSBA reported yesterday that out of five referendum questions on the ballot Tuesday, only one passed. While a small renovation project in Hopewell Township, Cumberland County got voter approval, everything else — from solar panels to renovations to new buildings to artificial turf — got a thumbs-down. Doesn’t bode well for April, when voters in every town go through the relatively meaningless exercise of voting on school budgets.
