FINANCING THE KIND OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEW JERSEY NEEDS.
NORTON, JOHN K.
AN ANALYSIS OF EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS, THE COST OF SOLVING THEM, AND METHODS OF TAXATION BY WHICH ADEQUATE REVENUES COULD BE OBTAINED WAS MADE BY THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE IN RESPONSE TO REQUESTS FROM NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS. THIS INITIAL REPORT HAS VALUE NOT ONLY TO CITIZENS OF THAT STATE BUT ALSO TO ALL AMERICANS INTERESTED IN IMPROVING THE SCOPE, QUALITY, AND METHOD OF FINANCING PUBLIC DUCATION. SOME EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS FACING NEW JERSEY WERE--(1) THE SCHOOLS HAD TO PROVIDE NOT ONLY FOR NORMAL POPULATION GROWTH BUT ALSO FOR IMMIGRATION, AND A BACKLOG OF UNFILLED NEEDS, (2) THE STATE RANKED LOWEST IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ENROLLMENT PER 1,000 POPULATION AMONG THE 50 STATES, (3) ONE OF EVERY SIX PUBLIC SCHOOL PUPILS ATTENDED SCHOOL IN THE SIX OLDER CITIES, (4) HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS ENCOUNTERED SEVERE HANDICAPS IN SECURING EMPLOYMENT, (5) ONE QUARTER OF A MILLION ADULTS WERE FUNCTIONAL ILLITERATES, AND (6) THE NEED EXISTED FOR 2-YEAR COLLEGES. THE EFFECTS OF AN OBSOLETE AND INADEQUATE PATTERN OF PUBLIC SCHOOL FINANCE INDICATED THAT THE RISING EDUCATIONAL COSTS FALL MORE ON REAL PROPERTY. NEW JERSEY IS IN A POSITION TO INCREASE ITS SUPPORT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND BRING THEM INTO LINE WITH THE DEMANDS MADE UPON THEM, THEREBY ACHIEVING GREATER ECONOMIC GROWTH AND PRODUCTION IN A HIGHLY INDUSTRIALIZED AREA. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR 50 CENTS FROM NATIONAL COMMITTEE FOR SUPPORT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1424 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036. (WB)
