New Jersey Public Schools: An Inefficient System of Public Education

Attorney Joseph R. Gannon, a former public school teacher, vice principal, and principal who served at the high school, middle school and elementary school levels in New Jersey, has made available a comprehensive report on how to improve efficiency in the New Jersey public school system.

Gannon's report, "New Jersey Public Schools: An Inefficient System of Public Education," explores the current problems with the public education funding system in New Jersey and the inefficiencies of that system. The report provides possible and realistic solutions to the complex problem. It is Gannon's hope that New Jersey legislators will use the report as a tool to develop an appropriate funding formula for public schools in the state. It can be downloaded for free at Gannon's Web site.

The report calls for "conscious bipartisanship" in New Jersey as the only possible approach to addressing the serious fiscal challenges plaguing the state's public school system. Gannon contends that legislators need to develop policies that improve four areas affecting funding: (1) Accountability and Standardized Testing; (2) Enforcement Power of the Department of Education; (3) Equity in School Funding within Districts; and (4) Disbursement of Funds to Different School Districts.

A graduate of Rutgers University Law School in New Jersey, Gannon is a former educator who is now a practicing attorney dedicated to advocating for students, infants, children and young adults throughout New York and New Jersey.

"I'm passionate about ensuring New Jersey's children get the educational services and treatment to which they are legally entitled," said Gannon. special education law. "The fact is that the educational system often denies the necessary care, services and programs to the very children they are designed to help. My hope is that this report will contribute to the dialogue about how to make the New Jersey education system more efficient and in a stronger position to prepare our children for success in the global economy."
