Capitol Pressroom

Dec. 23, 2014: Sen. Flanagan, President Bonnie Russell, Dr. Rick Timb, Bob Lowry, and Billy Easton

Last week, the Cuomo Administration sent a letter to Chancellor Tisch and Commissioner King stating that he intends to enact education reforms through the budget.

Today, we hear reactions from a number of different stakeholders: First, Senator John Flanagan (R – Smithtown), the Chair of the Senate Committee on Education, weighs in.

Then, NYS PTA President Bonnie Russell explains what parents and teachers think of the Governor’s plans.

Finally, a roundtable discussion of what power over education the Governor could wield in the budget process with the New York State Council of School Superintendents’ Bob Lowry, the Statewide School Finance Consortium’s Dr. Rick Timbs, and the Alliance for Quality Education’s Billy Easton.
