Take Action

We need your help!

1. Call and email the Speaker and your Council Member on class size. Urge them to allocate at least $100 million toward class size reduction in next year’s budget. Then, please take this one-minute survey so we can keep track of who has been contacted.

2. Send a letter to the Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Carranza asking them to stop violating student privacy by making personal information available to charter schools for marketing purposes. Chancellor Carranza’s primary responsibility should be to support and strengthen our public schools, rather than help charters recruit more students and divert more public funding, already costing the DOE more than $2.1 billion per year.

3. Send a letter to Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Carranza to stop school overcrowding. According to the DOE’s own data, more than 500,000 public school students are crammed into overcrowded NYC schools. The increased number of 3K, preK and co-located charter school students in our schools have merely made the problem worse. Meanwhile, NYC’s overall population is growing fast and there is a residential building boom in every borough.

4. Class Size Matters relies on contributions from the community to continue advocating for smaller class sizes and the privacy rights of public school children. Read more about us and what we do. And then please consider donating to our cause.
