Reflections: Fair Funding

Kathie Foster, Superintendent

As you are likely aware, the Robbinsville Board of Education and a small army of citizens have once again banded together in solidarity to continue the fight for our fair share of state aid.  Last year, we provided testimony at Senate and Assembly Budget Hearings, delivered over 4,200 letters to our representatives, and maintained a high profile both locally and at the state level.
