In October 2011, five new white papers were issued that offer legal, social, and financial analyses on the resources and services children, particularly children from poverty, need in school to obtain a sound basic education. These resources and services include both the opportunities provided in formal school settings and on providing a full range of educationally relevant “out of school” services that students need to overcome the impediments to learning that poverty imposes. In response, a panel discussed the cost, implementation, and general feasibility of providing comprehensive educational services to New York City public school students and public school students nationwide.


Susan H. Fuhrman, president of Teachers College, Columbia University, moderated the panel discussion. The five panelists included Michael A. Rebell, executive director of the Campaign for Educational Equity; John B. King Jr., New York State Commissioner of Education and president of the University of the State of New York; Mary Anne Schmitt-Carey, president of Say Yes to Education; David Wakelyn, Deputy Secretary for Education in the State of New York; and Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers.
