Brooklyn: School aid crisis meeting

School Aid Crisis Meeting Assemblymember Jim Brennan is hosting a meeting to discuss the school aid crisis, how schools may be effected, and how to get involved. A law passed in last year’s state budget linked the distribution of vital school aid dollars to the successful resolution of a collective bargaining process--its goal was to determine the specific criteria for the controversial teacher and principal rating system. Because an agreement was not reached by the deadline dictated in the law, New York City’s children are losing $250 million in the current 2012- 2013 state budget. Without an agreement on teacher evaluations by Sept. 1, 2013, NYC will lose an additional $224 million in state aid, bringing the total loss in 2013-2014 to $724 million. Another $1 billion is at-risk unless there is an agreement on teacher evaluations. We must pressure Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature to fund our children’s schools NOW and not wait for the rating system impasse to be resolved!
The event will start on: 02/26/2013 12:30 am And will end on: 02/26/2013 2:00 am.
