Better Quality Education
Lift the Charter School CapPublic charter schools work. Tens of thousands of kids are on waiting lists. Over nearly two decades, public charter schools have demonstrated an ability to improve results at lower cost, particularly for students who have been trapped in underperforming schools. Charter schools have a greater ability to innovate in the classroom and tailor curriculum to meet the needs of the school population. More choice, more innovation and more competition will improve public education statewide.
Pass the Education Scholarship Tax CreditNew Yorkers pay more per student for public education than any other state in the nation, but too many kids from low and middle income families are trapped in failing schools. They lack the freedom to choose a better option. Tax credits for donors to scholarship programs will help thousands of kids get a better education at lower cost. It can also help pay for supplies and other costs public school teachers often pay.
Tell your state legislators that parents and students can’t wait any longer for better schools. They need more choices in education now.
Stop Cuomo’s College Mandate SchemeYou’ve been lied to about the costs. You’ve been kept in the dark about the details. But despite what the Governor says, NOTHING IS FREE. Forcing every New Yorker to pay billions for college tuition is wrong, unfair, unaffordable and will hurt low and middle income families and seniors. It will lead to more spending, more bureaucracy, bigger class sizes and a lower quality education.
Contact your State Legislators today and tell them you can’t afford shady Cuomo’s not-so-free college scheme.
