Early this month, City Council Progressive Caucus members along with New York State Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic & Asian Legislative Caucus and leaders in education policy met to discuss priorities for the upcoming school year.The organizations included the Alliance for Quality Education of NY, Coalition for Educational Justice, and Urban Youth Collaborative among others. Led by the Council’s Committee on Education Chairman, Daniel Dromm, the group heard parent and student testimony illustrating school culture in today’s political climate. Included in the issues raised were charter school accountability, expanding community schools, raising investment in public education, supporting renewal schools and implementing restorative justice policies. The group also kicked off the #IamPublicEd campaign which is an opportunity to celebrate successful institutions in our community.
