Council on Costing Out

The Council on Costing Out (CCO) provided advice to the expert panel that determined the cost of providing a sound basic education to all students in New York. The CCO also organized public engagement forums throughout the state to promote input from parents, teachers, business leaders, taxpayers and other citizens in the costing out process. Members of the CCO do not neccesarily agree with the final report of the expert panel or with any positions that have been or will be taken by CFE or NYSSBA.

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 state’s responsibility to adequately fund this right, but deferred to the Governor and the Legislature to determine the appropriate amount. more >
