- Since New York’s legislature convened on Jan. 9, multiple education proposals have come up on the radar. A major contention between Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, and Democratic lawmakers is how much education aid to allocate to the state’s schools and whether the current funding formula needs restructuring.
- Another measure prevents teachers from being evaluated based on student test scores.
