NEW YORK, NY(TIP): Giving his comment on the Governor’s proposed budget announcement, Senator John Liu thanked the governor “for honoring our collective commitment to fully funding foundation aid with an additional $2.7 billion for school funding in your budget proposal. New York school kids can finally receive a sound, basic education as they are long owed under the New York State Constitution.
“However, the naked attempt to remove the cap on charters in NYC is a nonstarter. The cap has historically served to strike the balance between giving parents so-called ‘choice’ and the constitutional requirement to keep public schools open, and it’s not common sense to upset that balance.”
