Class Size Matters testimony on the city's refusal to use any of the billions of dollars of additional state and federal funds where they're needed the most

Update: A video of my testimony is posted above, along with responses by the Senate Education chair Shelley Mayer and Sen. Robert Jackson.  You can check out the testimony of other witnesses here.  The legislation introduced by Sen. Jackson and AM Jo Anne Simon that would restart the clock on NYC's obligation to lower class size is here; please ask your legislators to sign on if they haven't already. If you listen to the end, we also touch on the issue of Mayoral control.

Tomorrow, Oct. 5, 2021, State Senate Standing Education Committee and the State Senate Standing Committee on NYC Education will hold joint hearings on the city's use of the additional state and federal education funds at 250 Broadway downtown. More about these hearings here. On the same page, the hearings will be live streamed starting at 10 AM. 

Class Size Matters will give testimony about the deficiencies in NYC's plans for these funds, as below.
