Gov. Chris Christie’s proposed state budget includes a modest increase in state aid to New Jersey’s public schools.

How modest? The administration says that it comes to about $20 per student.

That’s a small sum when spending-per-student tops $15,000 in New Jersey — depending on who does the math — but the bright side for schools is that at least it’s more than they got this year.

In an attempt to determine what the schools can do with an extra $20 per student, we’re asking our readers what the money might go for. We’ve offered a few options, but you can suggest your own in the comments section.
