When contrasted with the per-pupil spending levels in many former Abbott districts, the problem is self- evident and vivid. Despite decades of disproportionate funding levels, children in former Abbott districts are not getting the results they deserve.

2. Trenton

3. Camden

$22,531

4. Newark

$23,500

5. East Orange

6. Jersey City

$21,504

7. Pemberton

$22,014

8. New Brunswick

$20,951

9. Paterson

$20,525
