Return to the main story, A Level Playing Field

As a result of the New Jersey Supreme Court’s 1998 Abbott v. Burke ruling, per-pupil spending in some of the state’s poorest districts, known as the Abbott districts, increased more than 41 percent from 1996 to 2003.

Note: Figures have been adjusted for inflation to represent 2003 dollars. Districts were ranked according to per-pupil expenditures in the 1995-96 school year. Two Abbott districts fall in the category of the 30 highest-spending districts; one Abbott district is also counted in the lowest-spending group. Salem City was not included because it became an Abbott district in fiscal 2005.
