The Abbotts and their representatives argued that the formula could undo gains in the struggling districts. They asked the Supreme Court to find the change unconstitutional because of the dire consequences it would have for their children. In this school year, the first under the formula, most Abbott districts received the smallest aid increases given. In the next school year, most are projected to get no increase. The local Abbott districts are Camden, Burlington City, Gloucester City, and Pemberton Township.
