Wimberly: State Takeovers are Failed Operation, Returning Control to Districts Underfunded and Understaffed is Setting Students Up for Failure(TRENTON) - Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly (D-Bergen, Passaic) decries Education Commissioner's testimony on the Fairness Funding Formula and state takeovers at Assembly Budget hearing:
"Even if we (Paterson) are on a path to local control, we are on a path to failure. State takeovers are a failed operation and returning control to districts chronically underfunded and understaffed is setting New Jersey students up for failure. You're giving back a broken system.
"Paterson is the third largest district and the second most populated school district in the state. We have operated 26 years under state takeover and we are no better off now than we were then.
