Time to Educate Every Student
With the Governor’s budget coming out in January, this is the moment to raise our voices! We are calling on Albany to fully fund New York’s schools by investing $1.9 billion into education this year. This will not only get schools back on track with their Campaign for Fiscal Equity funding, but it is the starting point to ensuring all students have the resources, supports and opportunities that they need to succeed.
