NEWARK - A group called PENewark, short for "Partnership for Education in Newark," is listening to ideas on how to spend the $100 million in funds being donated by Facebook.
PENewark says the effort will happen over the next three months. It says the money gives the schools a shot at unprecedented change, and ideas for those changes will be key.
Some Brick City residents that News 12 New Jersey spoke with said they thought the money should be spent on new computers, while others said after-school programs and recreational fitness.
Both City Hall and PENewark say everyone should have input, because the public schools impact all city residents, whether they have kids in school or not.To learn more about PENewark, click here.
