StudentsFirstNY Statement on Governor Cuomo's 2016 State of the State and Budget Address

"Governor Cuomo's executive budget reflects his continued commitment to improving education in New York State. The Governor has laid down a strong marker that expands desperately needed quality school choices and supports high standards. The Governor is right in saying that parents need to have charters as a public school option and that New York must recruit and retain top teachers. Governor Cuomo has clearly heard parents' calls for higher quality schools for their children," said StudentsFirstNY Executive Director Jenny Sedlis.


StudentsFirstNY is a grassroots education advocacy organization dedicated to improving public schools throughout New York State.
