Governor Cuomo: Address School Funding Inequity
Remove the gap elimination adjustment. Remove the artificial low wealth floor in distributing Foundation Aid that severely penalizes the poorest districts.
Why is this important?
Multiple research studies have shown that New York State ranks as one of the very worst of the 50 states in funding fairness. The poorest school districts, both rural and urban, cannot meet the basic educational needs of their students. At the same time, schools in more affluent areas offer extensive programs.
