State Charter School Association to Governor Cuomo: Don't forget, charter schools around the state continue to face major inequities
Albany, NY – The Northeast Charter Schools Network today sent the following statement in response to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2018 State of the State address.
Northeast Charter Schools Network New York State Director Andrea Rogers said, “We applaud Governor Cuomo for highlighting inequities between schools within districts. We've been saying it for years: children are not worth more or less based on the school they attend. It's important to remember that charter schools are public schools serving an overwhelmingly disadvantaged student population. Let's help them too.
