Right now, the New York State Senate proposed budget is a disaster in the making for the children in New York’s public schools.
If the cuts go through, we can expect class sizes of 28 in the first grade; the loss of most after-school programs; elimination of what’s left of music, art and other enrichment programs; no summer school; and a return to conditions after the fiscal crisis of the 1970s, as schools put off necessary maintenance and buildings get dirtier and more dilapidated.
We can’t ask kids to pay the price for the mistakes that adults have made with our economy. The kids deserve better than this.
We need you to call your state senator TODAY to voice your opposition to devastating cuts in this budget proposal.
