Education

It’s time that big business and Wall Street bankers pay their fair share so our government can invest in every street.

We need elected officials who will fight for:

• More Money for Our Schools.

Money matters for low-income students and students of color who are being left behind at alarming rates. New York State has failed to provide the necessary funding to ensure they have the opportunity to learn, which is their constitutional right.

• Our Kids.

Instead of cutting back on education, we need to protect our kids’ future with programs that get them ready for kindergarten and then ready for college and 21st century jobs. Programs like pre-K, after-school, community schools, and advanced placement classes.

• Fair Taxes.

Bad policies have helped the rich get richer, while leaving everyone else behind. Our state and federal governments can raise the money for better schools by asking the richest people to pay their fair share through fair taxes.
