Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Education Tax Credit and Charter School Increase

“Today there are 137,000 open job postings in New York City, largely because employers cannot find people with the requisite skills to fill them. This is why the business community strongly supports Governor Cuomo’s proposals to provide equitable state funding for charter schools as well as a tax credit for supporters of parochial schools. New York must develop a new generation of talent in order to maintain our position as a global center of innovation and commerce, and investing in a full range of education opportunities is the only way to accomplish that.”
