Want to ask the state WHY or tell them what you think about their disastrous funding formula?

The public is invited to a "Conversation with Education Commissioner Lucille Davy," moderated by NJN's Senior Political Correspondent Michael Aron, joined by panelists Dunstan McNichol (Contributing Reporter, NY Times/NJ Section and former Star Ledger Statehouse Reporter covering finance & state budget issues), Jim O'Neill (President of GSCS and Superintendent of School District of the Chathams), and Lynne Strickland (GSCS Executive Director).

Many Ridgewood residents are talking about attending. If you can go, please do! This is a good chance to show Ms. Davy -- by our numbers, at the very least -- what we think, and to hear her explain some of the state's actions.
