Regional Districts Universally Opposed School Budgets; Small Electorates Much More Supportive

Some interesting statistics not mentioned in the APP coverage of the recent school budget votes in Monmouth and Ocean counties show that voters in regional school districts like ours nearly universally opposed their school budgets, while small electorates were much more supportive of their budget proposals.
  • Only 1 of 9 (11%) regional school districts voted in favor of their school budget.
  • 10 out of 22 (45%) accepted their school budgets in districts where less than a thousand people voted. No regional districts fit in that category, btw.
