NYSUT expresses optimism towards elected leaders

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.—New York State United Teachers expressed optimism toward elected leaders on Tuesday after hearing that they are beginning to listen to parents and educators.

Various parents and educators called for increased state aid to public education and for a three-year moratorium on the high-stakes consequences from standardized testing.

According to NYSUT, it was encouraged by 83 legislators who have endorsed $1.9 billion school aid increase in next year's state budget, and by several bills that passed the Senate Education Committee.

"We are encouraged by some of the early discussion and action, especially the legislative endorsement of a robust school aid increase to direct as much money into classrooms as possible and real conversation about a moratorium," said NYSUT President Richard C. Ianuizzi.
