The Assembly and Senate stand with our schools but they are not the ones who make decisions on tuition increases.
Tuition increases are negotiated by State Education Department (SED) and the Division of Budget (DOB). SED is beginning to prepare the rate letter that they will send to DOB and the Board of Regents can be instrumental in influencing what SED will request.
Attached is a letter for you to send to your Regent and the Members at Large, drawing their attention to our inadequate funding, teacher shortage crisis and discrimination against our kids!
While they understand that #OurKidsareYOURKids (their kids), they need to hear from you to remind them to take action now!

Please send your letter no later than April 5th but the sooner the better and please forward this email to all your lists and groups!
It will take all of us to create the momentum we need to save our schools!
We had some wins in the Assembly and Senate one-house budgets and
now we need to CALL CALL CALL to make sure that our priorities make it to the final budget!
