The State Senate’s one-house budget resolution is appalling:
- it sells out public K-12 education in favor of charter schools and private schools;
- it leaves CUNY woefully underfunded while reducing estate taxes for the wealthiest New Yorkers;
- it includes a property tax freeze that would primarily benefit the rich; and
- it says NO to the NYS DREAM Act, ignoring that undocumented students were brought to New York as children.
Educators across the State are standing up to denounce the Senate’s plan and calling for a more equitable final budget that invests in the people of New York, rejects the privatization of public education and makes corporations pay their share. The PSC is working with our partners at UFT to bring our demands to the doorstep of NYC’s most vulnerable Republican Senator, Senator Marty Golden of Brooklyn. This Friday at 3:30 PM members of both unions (and coalition partners) will rally across the street from Senator Golden’s office at 74th St and 5th Avenue in Brooklyn. Join us to show him the voters of NYC will not stand for the budget his house has put forward.
