The Brooklyn renovation cost $93 million dollars, so start there. Good luck with that!

Back to reality, of NJ’s 422 high schools, Snyder ranks 322, Dickinson 285, Ferris 345, and Lincoln 339.

Magnet schools should be ranked with other magnet schools, not to those who accept all. What are the rankings for JC’s regular schools?

Based on prior constitutional mandates and court decisions, the BOE is correct.

And it was state law that a) imposed a property tax cap and b) required all PILOT payments to be made to municipalities. So don't blame the district for underfunding.


Towns can ask for cap rises over 2%, and no city (including JC) was forced to give PILOTS at all, especially in non distressed areas like the JC waterfront.

JC schools have been playing with house money for decades, and given that it is Jersey City we can only imagine the graft and waste. Now that JC taxpayers will have more skin in the game, will they demand reform and transparency?

Yvonne, the result is a 2% increase in JC taxes. Considering how low JC taxes are compared to the NJ average your takeaway should be ‘how lucky JC taxpayers have been for decades’.

To be clear, the 100-200% tax increase refers to the portion of taxes that support schools, not your overall real estate tax, no? It’s so large, since JC homeowners currently pay such a tiny amount to fund JC schoolchildren.

This is a perfect explanation for why Christie vetoed the tunnel to Macy’s basement-NJ would’ve been solely responsible for all cost overruns.

Tax revenue 27 billion, tax break generated from that 3 billion. AOC is as stupid about math as she is on everything else.

We can agree on your last thought. At least the reval woke up some JC residents to wasteful school spending.

My point here is that as long as JC has been severely overfunded and undertaxed JC residents didn’t care about school funding, and BOE inefficient and wasteful spending. Now that’s changing we’ll see JC taxpayers sing a different tune.

Bullshit? Dad pays $32,000 per year in property taxes despite not having a child in school since 1978. And school cost in his town is less than $18,000/year.

JC residents pay 17% of the $23,000 cost. Pretty good deal. Fulop has been squealing about JC paying its fair share, to the point of getting the payroll tax rather than take care of its own children.

Plenty of people pay property taxes enough to cover education costs in the suburbs. As JC pays only 17% of educating its own children (and illegal kids) the impact is tiny. As JC will begin paying its fair share expect the tone to change.

Add in ESL, lunch, IEP’s, and I’m sure the average illegal kids costs well over $25,000/per student per year. Let’s say two kids-are their parents paying $50,000 a year in taxes?

Hell no.

The story guesses almost 12% of K-12 students are here illegally. If that’s the avg, then JC must be higher. Yet Fulop with his sanctuary city crap encourages illegals to come here. Imagine how much it costs the BOE and NJ taxpayers who carry JC’s load?

Same thing going on with the VA Governor, most people don't give a crap about something tasteless a guy did 35 years ago, but the loudest and most "virtue demanding" are hounding him out of office.


Somehow our Spartacus has ignored the NJ gal in the Alvarez mess, (after attacking Judge Kavanaugh), but has gone after the VA folks. Go figure.
