Right Makes Might: Working Together to Ensure Students' Right to a Sound Basic Education Now and for the Future
The Campaign for Educational Equity will be convening an important statewide conference on January 23, 2014, in Latham, NY. At the conference, we will first review (1) the report of the governor’s New NY Education Reform Commission, which is expected to be issued at the end of this month, and (2) the governor’s executive budget proposal, which will be announced on January 21. Then, we will discuss a new statewide lawsuit that will seek to ensure adequate funding and the opportunity for a sound basic education for all students, as well as the political and public engagement activities that, along with the lawsuit, will be necessary to achieve maximum progress in closing budget gaps this year and achieving lasting results for the long term.
