Mistake In Gov’s Office Costs N.J. $400M Education Grant


christieFailure to follow directions may have prevented New Jersey from winning a $400 million federal education grant. coring documents from the Race to the Top grant competition show New Jersey received no points on one section because the state provided budget figures for 2010 and 2011 while the application asked for numbers from 2008 and 2009.The section was worth 4.8 points on the 500-point scoring chart.

Ohio, the lowest-scoring state to be awarded the sought-after grant on Tuesday, got just three points more than New Jersey.

State Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver called it “a stunning mistake that is going to hurt New Jersey’s children.”
