The New NY Education Reform Commission is a twenty-five-member Commission charged with examining the current structure of the state’s education system through the lens of what is in the best interest of students. This is one in a series of public hearings that the New NY Education Reform Commission is holding to gather input from local stakeholders as well as the public on actionable solutions to improve New York’s public education system in order to better meet the needs of its students while also respecting the taxpayer.
On July 18, 2012, Governor Cuomo’s newly formed Education Commission will be “specifically looking for solution-oriented input on:
The Structure of New York’s Public Education System –The Commission aims to examine the structure of New York’s education system and propose improvements to better meet the needs of our students while respecting the taxpayer; Teacher and Principal Quality and District Leadership – The Commission aims to examine factors in preparing, recruiting, training, and retaining high quality teachers and principals, and factors in developing district leadership to improve student learning and raise student achievement; and Student achievement and family engagement – The Commission aims to examine factors in raising student achievement from prekindergarten through high school including parental involvement and support systems to put students on tract to graduate high school and be college/career ready. . .”

This is an opportunity for every group to be heard. If this is seen as merely another game, then let’s register to play and then plan to win. They’ve already shared the ground rules, “Space is limited; please RSVP by sending an e-mail to NYEducationReformCommission@exec.ny.gov” and they’ve told us what they want to hear. (See Above and read more specific information on the website) now it’s time to act.
Each group concerned with the education of our children should be caravaning to Buffalo to support their group’s speaker. The RTA should be sponsoring several buses for teachers and parents to take.
