Alliance For Quality Education Commends Cuomo
January 17th, 2012

The Alliance for Quality Education issued this statement on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposed budget:

School Aid and Competitive Grants
“We commend Governor Cuomo for restoring $805 million in school aid; these funds will help students throughout the state. The exact distribution of these funds and how much is prioritized to high need and average need school districts will take a few days to evaluate. We are greatly concerned that almost one-third of these funds could be distributed based on competition between school districts which has the potential to create a system of educational winners and losers among our students. It is important to note that last year the state moved backwards on its commitment to quality education by enacting huge classroom cuts that resulted in larger class sizes and narrowing of the curriculum. Students need the budget to focus on restoring these classroom cuts for all, not only for those whose schools win at a competition.

Cost Savings through Centralizing School Bus Purchasing
Governor Cuomo has proposed a new cost savings initiative that would centralize the purchasing of school buses through a single statewide contract. This is the type of cost saving initiative from the state we need to see more of and we commend Governor Cuomo for providing the leadership to advance this type of common sense cost savings solution.
