"Today Albany leaders stepped up and delivered for parents and students who demanded more choice. Too many children are stuck in failing schools without options," said StudentsFirstNY Executive Director Jenny Sedlis. "Thanks to the leadership of Governor Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Flanagan and Assembly Speaker Heastie, families in New York City will have more high quality school choices. Thankfully, Albany leaders understand that charter schools play a critical role in the delivery of free, public education in New York."
