2024 Education Priorities

Public education, from birth through college, has always been at the heart of the fight for civil rights in this country. That is because public education is the surest path to financial security, giving all families dignity and opportunity, and ultimately to creating a just society. Those at the top of the hierarchy know that to maintain their power, they have to deny an equal education to Black and brown children, immigrant children and working class children.

Our fight for education justice is not just about what happens in the classroom, but about what can happen in a society where all children – regardless of race, class, or status – have the same opportunities to learn, grow, and ultimately lead. 

These are the pillars of our fight for New York’s children and families in 2024:

School funding & Foundation Aid
Early Care & Learning
Positive school climate
