Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Governor Cuomo’s 2015 Education Agenda

“The business community applauds Governor Cuomo’s commitment to accelerate the pace and enlarge the scope of improvements in the public education system, starting with continuation of mayoral control of the city schools and including the expansion of school choice, improving teacher quality and enforcing high standards of performance. His program seeks to align the interests of students, parents, educators and employers and provides the resources required to ramp up collective efforts to ensure opportunities for all New Yorkers.”
