Advocates to discuss findings from NY schools tour
ALBANY Advocates for increased school funding in New York are set to announce the findings from a tour of 16 school districts across the state.
The Alliance for Quality Education and the Campaign for Fiscal Equity have been gathering evidence that the state is underfunding school districts, to support a lawsuit claiming the state has failed to provide "sound basic education."
During the fact-finding tour, the organizations visited school districts in the Capital region, Yonkers, the Mohawk, Hudson and Genesee valleys, the Southern Tier, Long Island and the New York City area.
Assembly Education Committee chairwoman Catherine Nolan, a Democrat, is expected to join the organizations Monday in Albany to discuss the issue.
