We want you to join us in taking action so that all New York students and families have access to educational options that will pave the way to a brighter future. We know many of our schools aren’t working the way they should, and we thought it was important to look closely at the problem by examining the current state of schools across New York.
Great schools change everything.
Every child deserves a great school, no matter their background. Together with New Yorkers across the state, NYCAN fights for the research-backed policies that will make sure they get one.
As an educator, I am just one piece of the puzzle in the education reform debate—the more voices we involve, the stronger our education system can become. Let’s work together to empower the young people in our city to create a future, vivid with endless possibilities.Laura BlackburnFeb 14 2013
As a teacher, a wife, a mother of four and an educational consultant, it has been my mission to see the academic debt paid to those who have historically seldom benefited from our educational system. When I dug deeper, I realized that marginalizing some, whether they be students of color or students from low-income households, we limit the expectations and the performance of all children.Worokya DuncanFeb 14 2013
