TRENTON - As News 12 New Jersey has been reporting, the New Jersey Supreme Court says the state must restore $500 million in cut school aid to the former "Abbott Districts."

News 12 New Jersey spoke with Raymond Broach, the superintendent of Trenton schools, who says the cash can't get to his district fast enough.

Broach and other administrators say the court's ruling affirms that challenges in certain, impoverished districts, mean educating some children simply costs more money.

He says the district faces massive layoffs in support staff such as bus drivers and janitors, which could now be avoided.
