Overview

Children across New York are being denied the opportunities that only a quality education can provide. Overcrowded classrooms, out-dated textbooks, and a lack of basic supplies are among the barriers kids face to learning at school.

As a member of the Alliance for Quality Education, the Public Policy and Education Fund of New York advocates for fair funding and smarter spending to ensure that all children have access to a high quality public education. The Fund assists the AQE coalition with research and community outreach and education.

The Alliance for Quality Education's achievements include successful campaigns to win funding to reduce class size, expand pre-kindergarten, and provide essential education services for millions of New York children.
