All children deserve a free, high quality public education. Public education has the power to cause a ripple effect that can create progress and prosperity across our district and our city. Transforming our schools must be a top priority.

  • Improve funding for our public education system via increased taxes for the super-rich and the reinvestment of the NYPD’s budget into services that directly benefit students.

  • Provide all classrooms with access to the latest tech to enhance students’ learning experience.

  • Provide every school with the number of school counselors, nurses, mental health professionals and teachers that its students need to thrive.

  • Increase teacher pay and decrease class size.

  • Increase community involvement in public education through community events, after school programs, and local partnerships.
