Testimony on the huge unnecessary cuts to the FY 25 education budget & 5-year capital plan

March 18, 2024

Today, the City Council is holding hearings on the education budget; public testimony begins at about 2:30 PM. You can sign up to speak in person or remotely here, to protest the looming budget cuts, the rising class sizes, and the fact that the DOE has slashed billions from the capital plan, including thousands of new school seats AFTER the class size law was passed, which makes no sense.

Are these huge budget cuts necessary? Are they going to cause more families to send their kids to NYC public schools, or convince them to stay in the city rather than move elsewhere? Are they going to help students learn? The answer is clearly NO.

Included here is our testimony, which we hope to share with the City Council during public testimony.
