This edition: Michael A. Rebell on NYC's educational fundingTweet
Original tape date: November 3, 1999.
Host, David R. Jones, President of the Community Service Society of New York, discusses New York City's educational funding issues with Michael A. Rebell of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity. The two discuss how NYC's young students are not being provided an equal opportunity education because the Board of Education is not distributing enough money to inner city schools. They note that NY State is only legally obligated to provide minimum to adequate education to its young citizens but that NY State sits at the bottom of the nation's quality of education. A lawsuit by the Campaign for Fiscal Equity is demanding that NY State allocate more money to urban schools.
