Video: AQE Recaps the 2012-13 Statewide Education Budget Fight

April 4, 2012

The Alliance for Quality Education (AQE) put together the video below that sums up the 2012-13 state education budget fight. The video commends the hard work and dedication of students, parents, educators and community members from across the state. Also included are highlights from AQE’s recent large mobilization events including, “First Things First” 500-person kick-off held in January, Early Childhood and Pre-K Education Lobby Day and Rural and Small City Schools Lobby Day in February, and the 1,500-person annual Education Lobby Day held in March.

Now the city budget fight is upon us! Mayor Bloomberg’s preliminary budget calls for a $119 million decrease in classroom spending, 1,117 fewer teaching positions, loss of 47,000 slots from child care and after-school programs, all of which will result in less opportunities for NYC students. So, as always, the fight continues!
