CFE Supports Statewide Lobby Day
Governor Cuomoâ€™s budget gives $1 billion to the wealthy and takes $565 million from our children in NYC.
More Cuts=>More struggling schools=>More schools close
Statewide Lobby Day!
Fact: More than half a million children across the state attend schools that donâ€™t have the supports to adequately prepare them for college and careers, yet Governor Cuomo plans education budget cuts.
It is unacceptable to take $565 million (on top of $442 million last year) from our childrenâ€™s classrooms in NYC to finance a tax cut for millionaires.
Join hundreds of parents and education advocates in Albany to speak up against education cuts and to ask our legislators to do the right thing.
Get on the bus to Albany, let your voice be heard!
OUR CHILDREN NEED COLLEGE & CAREERS NOT EDUCATION BUDGET CUTS!

Parents from across the state march on the Capitol in Albany to show support for CFE.
CFE v. State of New York
In 2006, after 13 years in the Courts, the New York State Court of Appeals affirmed the right of every public school student in New York to the opportunity for a sound basic education and the stateâ€™s responsibility to adequately fund this right, but deferred to the Governor and the Legislature to determine the appropriate amount. more >
