  1. 1. 2012-13 BUDGETA sound, basic education for all
  2. 2. Our Mission“…we recognized that by mandating a school system ‘wherein all the children of this state may be educated,’ the State has obligated itself constitutionally to ensure the availability of a ‘sound basic education’ to all its children.” -Court of Appeals Decision – June 26, 2003 Campaign for Fiscal Equity v. The State of New York
  3. 3. Sound, Basic Education for All “I think the inequity in education is probably the civil rights issue of our time. There are two education systems in this state. Not public and private. One for the rich and one for the poor and they’re both public systems.” “Mr. Cuomo also committed to redistributing state school aid from wealthy, politically powerful suburban school districts and sending more dollars to high-need rural and urban schools, saying the governor had a duty to be “the great equalizer.”
