Forum on Abbott Funding Held at Washington School

It was a full agenda Thursday night (Oct. 5, 2006) at a Town Meeting held to discuss the state of Plainfield's schools.

More than 50 residents heard six panelists give their views on the current status of the Abbott school financing and the impact withdrawing the monies would have on education in Plainfield schools.

The panelists were: David Sciarra, Director, Education Law Center; Angelina Chiaravalloti, Chief of Staff, Plainfield Public Schools; Dr. Lillie Sipp, Chief Academic Officer, Plainfield Public Schools; Agurs Cathcart, President, Plainfield Board of Education; and Richard Shapiro, Esq.

The non-partisan informational event was sponsored by the New Democrats for Plainfield.
