They claim the reasons children-of-color (in particular black children) are not getting a FAIR education is all about racism. “Greed. Billionaires and privileged WHITE people.” They asked many times, “Is that Fair? Is that Equity?”

“Governor Cuomo is not a champion for our communities, specifically black, brown, and low-income communities. We cannot stand back and watch Cuomo rob our communities of the funds and resources they desperately need …”
“Recently, the New York State budget office informed school districts statewide that it was temporarily withholding 20 percent of the State’s payments. Statewide, New York’s schools are missing out on $5 billion in state aid. For New York State to intentionally hold back 20 percent of state funding for public education at any time is unconscionable; to do so now, weeks before schools are set to reopen amidst a pandemic is a direct attack on the safety of students, educators, and our communities.”
Part 2 Video: A 16 years old student addressed the crowd outside Gov. Cuomo’s NYC office.
“Governor Cuomo is not a champion for our communities, specifically black, brown, and low-income communities. We cannot stand back and watch Cuomo rob our communities of the funds and resources they desperately need amidst a global pandemic and growing inequities. If Cuomo successfully withholds the 20% of state aid in this moment, we will be reeling from the impacts of this decision for years.”
“Let’s show the governor that NYC says NO to any cut to our education budgets! We need more, not less!”
1)The release of the 20% state aid that is being withheld by the Governor currently.
2)To demand that the state utilize the rainy day funds to fill any gaps in the state budget and to stop any potential cuts to the education budget.
3)To demand that the state legislature pass S7378 to tax the rich and generate the revenue needed to fully fund our schools.
“Together, we will win!“
