Governor Cuomo’s proposed budget may bring New York City additional funding supports. However, there is still much uncertainty surrounding the proposal. The additional aids requires our teacher union to finalize an evaluation system by September 1. Our schools missed out on grant money earlier this month failing to achieve this exact task.
We’re optimistic about the budget increase. Every dollar can help!
However, we’re also realistic. Even if this proposal passes and our schools get the additional aids, it’s not enough. It’s just not enough. Our kids deserve so much more. Our kids deserve a well-rounded education that will prepare them to compete in this increasingly challenging world. Arts to Grow is committed to do our part in that mission.
