For several years, New York schools have been suffering state aid cuts to their educational programs. Coupled with the new property tax cap; our schools are close to educational insolvency. Resulting from the loss of staff and loss of programs, advanced placement, electives, sports teams, art, music and more, our students’ educational opportunities have been drastically reduced. Educate NY Now unifies parents, students, educators, administrators, unions, school board members, community organizations, civil rights groups, education advocates and others statewide around a broad-based campaign to demand that our state government fulfills New York’s constitutional obligation to provide all students with a quality education. Learn how you can become involved in this statewide movement.
