Right Makes Might: Working Together to Ensure Students' Right to a Sound Basic Education Now and for the Future

The Center for Educational Equity (formerly Campaign for Educational Equity) convened an important statewide conference on January 23, 2014, in Latham, NY. At the conference, we first reviewed (1) the report of the governor’s New NY Education Reform Commission and (2) the governor’s executive budget proposal. Then, we will discussed a new statewide lawsuit that will seek to ensure adequate funding and the opportunity for a sound basic education for all students, as well as the political and public engagement activities that, along with the lawsuit, were necessary to achieve maximum progress in closing budget gaps and achieving lasting results for the long term.
