JERSEY CITY -- Jersey City public schools will get a portion of the revenue the city receives from long-term tax abatements under an executive order issued by Mayor Steve Fulop yesterday.

The executive order applies to all future market-rate residential, hotel, commercial and industrial tax abatements. ... h.html#incart_2box_hudson

a good first step imo, but more can and should be done to address abbot/school funding issue.
