The gap between our best and worst performing schools is rising rapidly.
Many of our school districts are woefully underfunded, and our teachers are forced to spend their own money to make sure our children have the supplies they need.
This is unacceptable. When it comes to our children's futures, we must give it our all. As Mayor, education will be one of my top priorities. I will increase teacher salaries so they can survive in our expensive city. I will make sure every school district gets the investment they need and deserve. We must expand prep opportunities for all to give every child the best education we can offer. They deserve nothing less.
- Provide equitable investment across the board for schools by distributing property tax funds evenly throughout the city as opposed to having it be based on neighborhood property taxes.
- Raise teacher salaries.
- Fully fund CUNY so that it is free for all New Yorkers.
- Diversify curriculum to include character development, critical thinking skills, financial literacy and life lessons
