The NJ Schools Development Authority(SDA)has no funding for new projects and no plan to secure money to support its future. But there is plenty of work to be done. The Education Law Center has identified 381 additional major construction projects in the state’s 31 so-called SDA districts, not to mention hundreds more pending applications for repairs.

“It is absolutely reprehensible that this state obligation is not being met,” said Heather Sorge, campaign organizer for the Healthy Schools Now advocacy group, “leaving our New Jersey students and staff to suffer as a result.”
