Statement from Schools Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott on Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address


“I applaud Governor Cuomo for the forward-looking education proposals he outlined today in his State of the State address. New York City has observed gains through our work to extend the school day and expand access to early education, as well as our commitment to recruiting excellent teachers by raising base salaries. The proposals the Governor outlined today will build on these gains, and I look forward to working with him and our leaders in Albany this legislative session.”
