Even though New York state has the highest per-pupil spending for education in the nation, its public education system is failing in four of seven categories tracked by the watchdog group Alliance for Quality Education.
During a press conference in Albany last week, parents, educators and lawmakers unveiled a report card showing what New York is doing right, and what it is doing wrong in terms of educating students and preparing them for college.
“It is the right time to evaluate whether the state is heading in the right direction or in the wrong direction,” said Billy Easton, executive director of AQE. “Some say we are being too generous. No one said we are being too harsh.”Tweet
