Abbott v. Burke: An Historical Analysis of School Finance Reform in New Jersey. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, July 2008, Pages: 176
This dissertation traces the history of school finance reform in New Jersey through interviews with key education informants. This case spanned more than 30 years starting with Robinson v. Cahill. Raymond Abbott was a grade school child in Camden, New Jersey, and along with 19 school aged children in urban districts, filed suit against the most senior education and state officials in New Jersey. The case went through more than 10 iterations. It is the model case for anyone interested in studying school finance reform in the United States, particularly with all of the fits and starts. The case proves that if people have the political will, an equal education can be provided to all children in a state as diverse as New Jersey.
